Hosted in the beautiful mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho, and on the pristine beaches of La Jolla, California, we are sure to have a camp that matches your interests. We specialize in serving Veterans with traumatic brain injuries, blindness, visual impairment, PTSD, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and severe burns.

And it is all completely free for you and your military spouse to attend! That includes transportation, lodging, meals, instruction, and entertainment. Apply today at http://www.hgvets.org to attend!

Popular activities include: Nordic and downhill skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, fly fishing, water skiing, surfing, kayaking, and much, much more! Each participant receives private customized instruction from certified professionals.

After a day of fun, we cap each night off with entertainment that includes private concerts, comedians, and dinner cruises. We also provide amazing meals that will satisfy any appetite! Accommodations are first class.

Our staff is young, energetic and focused on making sure that your stay is comfortable, meaningful, and fun. Camps sizes are small, with only 6 or 7 couples. We will connect you with Veterans that have suffered similar injuries, who also share many of the same challenges. New friendships are easily formed in our stress-free, supportive, and private atmosphere. Each activity serves as a great time to socialize with your peers and spouse, and release stress you may be facing in your daily life.

Higher Ground is a great adaptive sports organization for Veterans because we are more than just a sports camp! Our goal is to give you the skills to not only build physical fitness, but manage the life changes you’ve experienced since your injury as you reintegrate into your home community or back into military service.

The amazing progress you can make at Higher Ground is not something that’s left behind when you return home. After leaving camp, we will connect you with recreation opportunities in your hometown, and even help purchase sports equipment and pay for recreational services. You will also benefit from the relaxing time spent bonding with your spouse, find increased self-confidence, and become part of a nationwide support network—all to help you rebuild the life you put on hold to serve our country!

Past participants agree that Higher Ground made a meaningful change in their lives. You were willing to sacrifice so much to protect America’s freedom, and the staff at Higher Ground is honored to serve Veterans like you. We look forward to meeting you at Higher Ground!
