A Place for Healing for Veterans and Families

Camp American Legion is more than a fishing camp.  Camp is a place for Wisconsin Veterans, Military and their families to come together in a safe place.  A place where others may have shared life experiences. 

When you first arrive at Camp you will notice the abundance of opportunities to unwind, relax, and rejuvenate.

There really is something about the north woods experience that helps us to find value in the little things in life.  It can help families to reconnect, bring a new appreciation for each other for couples and helps us to heal on our journey to find our own quality of life.

  • Healing those who have served -- and those who continue to serve -- and their families, through Wisconsin's north woods experience.

  • Offering a peaceful setting that encourages a re-connection with mind, spirit and loved ones

  • Camp is a community of volunteers that seek to serve those who need support to recover

The WHY

"Thank you for working so hard to make this an enjoyable experience. Without the chance to come to Camp and engage with other Veterans, I would likely continue to isolate." - James

On this day in 1919, The American Legion is federally chartered, which authorizes the as-yet unincorporated organization to proceed to the adoption of a constitution and bylaws, elect officers “and do all other things necessary” as outlined in U.S. Code, Title 36, Chapters 41-50. Under Chapter 43, “Purposes of corporation,” much of the language is borrowed from the original draft Preamble to The American Legion Constitution with some notable deviations, such as “to promote peace and good will among the peoples of the United States and all the nations of the earth” and “to cement the ties and comradeship born of service.” The original charter outlines the powers and authority of the organization, membership criteria, naming rights, exclusivity to manufacture and use The American Legion emblem, and a requirement that “the organization shall be nonpolitical and, as an organization, shall not promote the candidacy of any person seeking public office.” #AmericanLegionDay ...
