Veteran Adventures Trips

It’s one thing to meet other veterans at an RSO meeting or out on the town and swap stories. It is something completely different when that same group of veterans who just met is depending on one another to make it safely through a class IV rapid or to the summit of a snow covered mountain. The relationships formed during high intensity and challenging situations are some of the strongest we will ever create; that is why many of us have such strong bonds with comrades from our previous military experiences. Veteran Adventures aims to build those unwavering bonds with participants by providing challenging and adventurous opportunities that push us outside of our comfort zones.

March 10-18


Spend your spring break on a multi-sport backpacking adventure through some of the most beautiful places along Southern Illinois’ River to River Trail.  We’ll travel by land and by water and even climb some ancient sand-stone bluffs.  Our excursion will take us through the Shawnee National Forest’s hidden gems including Panther Den Wilderness, Ferne Clyffe State Park, Jackson Falls, Lusk Creek Wilderness, One-horse Gap, and Garden of the God’s Wilderness.  For the go-getter, do-it-all adventurer…this is your trip!
