Wisconsin Adventures on Wheels (WAW) is a privately funded nonprofit 501-c-3 development dedicated and designed solely to provide a quality outdoor experience for mobility challenged individuals, veterans, and their families. Participants are all “FREE OF CHARGE” for activities, food, and lodging. Currently they must provide transportation to our camp.
Development of the west-central Wisconsin 255 acres has taken 14 years and thousands of hours of donated time, expertise, and many resources. 2013 brought WAW another group and need into focus. Disabled and PTSD affected veterans and their families have. WAW was primarily reaching out to civilian physically challenged family units and individuals (clearly defined) in an attempt to provide free outdoor experiences.
Fall 2013 specifically saw WAW reassess its usage parameters and user profile to include multiple veterans groups for reunions, camping, turkey hunts, and deer hunts.
Nature plays a key role in these veterans coping with physical and emotional issues so to us at WAW they and their family units have created a new category of users. WELCOME VETERANS AND FAMILIES!
