Outward Bound Wilderness Excursions for OEF/OIF Veterans

August 22, 2008 | Programs & Services

Outward Bound, an international non-profit outdoor education program, is
offering fully funded outdoor adventure excursions to all OEF/OIF
veterans. It doesn’t matter what your current military status is
(active, inactive, discharged, retired) – you’re eligible to attend as
long as you deployed in support of OEF/OIF combat operations while in
the military. These five-day excursions offer adventure activities such
as backpacking, rock climbing, canyoneering, canoeing, and dog sledding
in beautiful wilderness areas in Maine, Texas, Colorado, California, and
Minnesota.

ALL EXPEDITION COSTS…for lodging, equipment, food, and instruction are
COMPLETELY FUNDED through generous funding by the Military Family
Outdoor Initiative Project, a joint partnership of The Sierra Club and
The Sierra Club Foundation. This includes the participants’ round-trip
transportation between home and the wilderness site; lodging en route;
and food, lodging, equipment, and instruction while on the course. The
excursion is offered at literally ZERO COST to the participant.
