You are not alone… We stand together

Our Mission

The mission of Pennsylvania Outdoor Veterans is to reduce veteran suicide through the healing nature and camaraderie developed during outdoor activities such as camping, hunting and fishing. It has been documented that reconnecting with nature has a strong healing effect on those that have been traumatized by combat and other life shattering events. Nature is not just a backdrop for health and healing activities, but rather a vital part of the healing process.

Recent Events

We offer a multitude of outdoor activities including, but not limited to, hunting, fishing and camping. Additionally, we educate families on post traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) along with suicide awareness through camping and retreats.

Pennsylvania Outdoor Veterans is happy to announce that we were awarded a $35,000 grant from the Donald and Dorothy Stabler Foundation in December 2019 to provide additional programs for veterans and their families.
