Wildheart Adventure Camp is located in the north woods of Northeastern Wisconsin, about 2 hours north of Green Bay. WH started in 2012 as a ministry of Victory Academy for Boys. Our boarding academy helps spiritually struggling teens develop and live out a biblical worldview. WildHeartgives us an amazing opportunity to help even more kids by utilizing our unique adventure camp setting.
The campers spend a very full threeweeks learning about and enjoying adventure activities while we challenge their thinking with scriptural Truth. The first week is Training Week (complete with The WH Obstacle Course) where campers learn to build campfires, survive in the woods, cook over the fire, and provide basic first-aid (just in case). The second and third weeks are spent on adventures like backpacking, paint-balling, canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting, and mountain biking.
The best part of WildHeart is how intense it is. From survival training and rappelling to dealing with guys about how God's Word addresses all the mundane and hardcore issues of life . . . WildHeart provides a dynamic setting to Learn, Grow, and Lead.
