The “Wisconsin Veterans Fishing Camp” was established to give the opportunity to Veterans from around the state of Wisconsin to attend a fishing camp dedicated to them. This is our way of showing our HEROES how THANKFUL we are for their service to our country, as well as for our FREEDOM.
The camp is held at Hidden Cove Resort, in Phillips, Wi. Owners Jerad and Regina Damjanovic, have donated the entire Resort free of charge for the camp. The Veterans that attend the camp do so free of charge. The only expense for the Veterans is their travel to and from the camp. ALL food, drink, and fishing licenses are provided by sponsors and donations. Veterans will fish exclusively with some of the finest Guides in the state. Our Guides donate their time, equipment, boats, and travel expenses for the camp. 100% of donations and sponsorship is used toward the camp and for our Veterans. Attending Veterans will have the opportunity to fish for Crappie, Walleye, Northern, and Muskie. Each day meals are prepared by our camp Cook. For full days of fishing bag lunches are prepared for each Veteran and Guide. Would you like to Nominate a Veteran ? Are you interested on how to Become a Sponsor ? It is simple.
