The EMBLEM Winter Sports Camp will be held in the Big Sky area January 24-27, 2017. Participants in this 4 day camp are encouraged to bring a significant other or caregiver with them. Participants can choose to ski or snowboard during this four day camp. Volunteer instructors and Eagle Mount staff provide ski and snowboard lessons or act as mountain guides based on each participant’s needs. The camp also provides opportunities for participants to spend time talking and connecting with fellow Montana veterans.
The EMBLEM (Eagle Mount Bozeman Lasting Experiences for Military) Program is designed to honor and aid our disabled veterans through adaptive recreation. At this time EMBLEM offers two summer camps and one winter camp every year. Our first winter camp was held in 2012, and the success of that camp led to the continuation and development of the EMBLEM Program. Participants have the opportunity to learn or relearn different outdoor recreational activities and spend time in nature. We offer these camps to those veterans who have sustained a life altering injury in service to our country. Our camps provide a safe and supported environment to enjoy outdoor activities alongside other veterans. There is opportunity to share stories and make new friends, with Military service creating a common bond. Eagle Mount provides all necessary volunteer and professional support for the participants.
