Seven lucky veterans will be chosen to take part in the six day excursion taking place July 9 – 14.

Four days will be spent in the BWCA.

The trip includes two nights at Veterans on the Lake Resort in Ely, Minnesota.

The group will then enter the BWCA at entry point #35, Isabella Lake, making way across the lake to find a base camp.
