If you are in the Milwaukee area, or are willing to travel here, we invite you to save the dates and register for our 

August 28-30 (Fri 6PM – Sun 10AM) NEW DATE!

Led by: U.S. Marine Corps veterans - Capt. Christopher Warner & Sgt. Jorge Monterrey

“The thing I liked most about Warrior Camp was… everything!”
-James M. (age 11)

 "My son and I went and we had a blast.  My son still talks about it.  I was thoroughly impressed with how much was done in such a short period of time.  My personal favorite time was the fire watch.  Spending time with my Son in such a quiet setting and being able to pray was very special.  David's favorite were the fire watch and the obstacle course if I had to pin it down to a few but he LOVED everything.  

The shooting, the self defense, the hike, capture the flag, even the little bits of info on survival given here and there.  I think my favorite activity was the navigation course.  That was awesome and it was such a great feeling of accomplishment for my son and I both when we found what we were looking for.  To have the prayer time and Saint stories at night was also great.  There were no activities that were just "ok" or "kinda fun".   Literally, EVERYTHING was great.  Every moment was enjoyed." 
-Robert S. from Wauwatosa, WI
