Camp Valhalla is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by veterans, for veterans. Their mission is to provide our nation’s heroes with an opportunity to dismiss the stress and anxiety of transitioning to civilian life by providing them with an all-inclusive stay at the retreat.

During this particular retreat funded by The Agoge Challenge the Valhalla crew will lead these veterans in team building exercises while life coach and world renowned public speaker Brian Flemming provides counseling services for each of these veterans.

The best the veteran community has to offer will come together to help their fellow service members through this 2 day course.

Camp Valhalla’s founder Jesse Diana, A marine veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan, struggled with homelessness, PTS and unemployment upon his discharge. He found that Outdoor non-verbal activities and camaraderie were necessary in his recovery.  In March 2014 he created a weekend retreat for veterans suffering from PTS, TBI, Combat trauma or having a rough transition. During this retreat veterans can Hunt, Fish, Hike and various other outdoor activities. They will also be able to connect with veterans of similar experiences and have one on one sessions with a veteran transition specialist to provide them with tools and resources for an effective transition.
