Something awesome about Trout Lodge is all the work we get to do with group events. We work with big groups, small groups, scouts, youth groups and so many other awesome people. Today, check out this profile of the incredible veterans who come to Trout Lodge! We are so glad they picked us to share their adventures! Veterans Outdoor Adventures Who makes up your group? Veterans Outdoors Adventures event welcomes Veterans with spinal cord injuries from all over the USA to spend three days at YMCA Trout Lodge to experience specialized clinics. The purpose of the event is for Veterans to spend quality time outdoors with family and friends while participating in adventurous programs. Many even learn something new that they never knew they could do. VA Tube Picture 4 How long have you been coming to the YMCA of the Ozarks? 3 Years What made you choose the YMCA?

Specialized clinics in trap, rifle, golf, boccia, action track chair trail rides, fishing, ziplining, tubing on the lake, archery & crossbow, followed up with a live concert on the lake. What is the best part about coming to the YMCA? The most amazing thing [about Trout Lodge] was watching other disabled vets become active and do things they never imagined they could do; tubing, fishing, zip-lining, kayaking. I learned that I could go tubing!! I rode in a polaris 4-wheelers on trails!! I played GOLF!!! Friends formed both locally and with people from other states. This is an awesome experience!
