"The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man,"

Our organization has been formed by a group of proud Wisconsin citizens who realized we needed a place for our country's heroes to relax and enjoy the great outdoors. For many of our men and woman returning from wars, skirmishes and other terms of service, the transition to civilian life is often wrought with peril. Perhaps, not the kind of peril they saw in action, but a deep meaningful dilemma that serves only to haunt them, not celebrate them. The issues of post-traumatic stress, identity crisis, homelessness, joblessness and countless others are all very real. If our heroes had a place where they could find a way to reconnect with themselves, their families and their dreams without constant noise and distraction of outside influences, this path would be smoother, more welcoming and certainly life changing.
