Camp My Way - Foundation Support

$6,474 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 77 people in 2 months
First Responders, Armed Forces Members, and Veterans are more vulnerable to PTSD than traditional citizens resulting in the 10th leading cause of death by suicide. 



Terrance Joseph Kosikar - Founder - Camp My Way 



I was a First Responder to the tragic death of Georgian Olympic Luge athlete Nodar Kumaritashvili,  who was killed during a training run on opening day of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Although I was well trained in a myriad of life saving techniques, I was not prepared to deal with the emotional impact sustained when those techniques were not enough. As a result of the fatality, I developed an Operational Stress Injury (PTSD) that launched me into a very costly downward spiral.



During several years of severe depression, anxiety,  suicide attempts, and substance abuse, I lost my family, my career, and nearly my life. Pushed to my breaking point, I found salvation within. Escaping into the back-country mountains, I found peace and purpose in mother nature’s beauty and simplicity. Many others who have suffered from PTSD have not been so lucky.





It is my mission in life to help people who are struggling from PTSD - overcome this terrible injury. We will be offering a series of 2 week long introspective nature retreats at Camp My Way. These trips will give people who struggle with  PTSD – Mental Health and Substance Abuse challenges an opportunity to leave their real world problems behind, and to find themselves in some of the most beautiful all natural terrain in the world. In my experience, this has proven to be an incredibly effective method to help manage my life , and prevent the onset of any future Mental Health struggles.

About Camp My Way / Nodar Kumaritashvili Legacy


Our outdoor adventure based program teaches Campers how to get back to the basics, survive off grid,  and respect our land that Mother Nature has provided all of us the time to heal, reconnect and appreciate our gift of life today.



Our self sustainability, combined with outdoor Adventure is aimed to help Emergency Service Providers who struggle with an Operational Stress Injury ( PTSD ) get their lives back … Naturally



----------------------------------------



Our Mission



The ultimate goal is to help people get their lives back and reconnect with themselves, family and friends through teamwork, meditation, self-discipline, exercise, nutrition and sharing positive experiences in a all natural environment.



We have designed a program of exercises and adventure for our campers to push personal limits, break down barriers, and reestablish a relationship not only with nature, but also with themselves and their families.



These experiences will provide our campers with the proper tools to cope with everyday struggles, and help educate them about problem solving strategies, setting new goals and the importance of daily routines.



----------------------------------------



IMPORTANT: 

Camp My Way is NOT A VACATION, but a cause for Natural Rehabilitation   



We have a very restrictive selection process to ensure those who want help, get help they need during this important stage of their recovery process.



----------------------------------------
