USING NATURE AND RECREATION TO HEAL THE SPIRIT
With its name derived from Homer's epic poem about overcoming adversity and finding the way home, Project Odyssey helps you overcome combat stress through outdoor, rehabilitative retreats that encourage a connection with nature, your peers, Project Odyssey staff, and trained counselors.
You have three opportunities to participate:
Through outdoor, recreational activities, you will discover inner strength and find the courage to continue your journey to recovery. The experiences gained from Project Odyssey help you work through challenges related to combat stress and improve mental attitudes and outlook. Activities include horseback riding, canoeing, whitewater rafting, kayaking, rock climbing, a high ropes course, fishing, skeet shooting, sled hockey, and skiing at retreats held in various locations across the country. You are encouraged to build new skills, connect with peers, and find support for combat stress among Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) staff and trained counselors.
The program does not end with the retreat. In fact, it is only the beginning as we facilitate continued support through WWP and other local combat stress resources. To participate, you must be approved by a Project Odyssey staff member, and register for our Alumni program.
