To inspire and nurture in youth a lifelong love for the outdoors through education and adventure.
Honoring our Heroes
Walking Humbly Outdoor Adventures “Hero’s Hunt” was the initial event that brought W.H.O.A. into existence. With the help of his fellow hunters, both Veteran and military supporters, our founder Micah Seavers brought the children of Gold Star and Purple Heart families together for a weekend of hunting and comradery. We have since added events that include not only our Veterans and Military members but also our first responders. Serving those who are willing to serve others is a mission that Camp W.H.O.A. is dedicated and committed to. Having the opportunity to share outdoor knowledge and skills with those who have sacrificed so much for our country and their children will continue to be one of Camp W.H.O.A.’s greatest honors.
Each year we host events to educate youth about wildlife management, hunter safety, outdoor sports, camaraderie through outdoor activities and to have respect for the nature that surrounds them.
Annual West Kentucky Trappers Class
This is a 2-day event open and free to the public with demonstrations, giveaways, food, and events.
This is our annual October Youth Hunt for the children ages 7-15 of Gold Star Families, wounded or killed servicemen, servicewomen, and first responders.
Catching with Cops
This fishing outing will focus on encouraging positive relationships between Law Enforcement and at-risk youth who have suffered through abuse, neglect, and/or poverty. Our hope is that these kids will learn to trust that Law Enforcement is there to help them, give them someone to confide in and protect them.
Youth Turkey Hunt
This hunt is for urban youth from grades 5-8, which have been referred to us by the school counselors and/or representative. We strive to give opportunities that would otherwise not be available. Our hope is to spark an interest in the outdoors in youth that might have never had the chance to experience what outdoors sports have to offer.
Children of Veterans with Survivors Guilt, PTSD
and/or are at risk for Suicide Quail Hunt
Besides the hunting, this hunt will also give opportunity to the parent to find others that relate to their struggle and help them heal through camaraderie and common interest.
1-day Outdoor Survival Camp
This event for youth ages 8-17 is a day of learning survival skills and testing your wits against nature.
