MVP conducts a broad range of veteran-led therapeutic adventure trips throughout Montana. Our trips are led by experienced veteran team leaders – no counselors. Trips range from 2-4 days in length with all food, equipment and suffering provided. We deliver an experience that is both physically and mentally challenging but promises a great deal of reward. Through our trips, a group of individuals with shared experiences emerge as a team with an appreciation for what it means to Suffer Well. If you’re a veteran who is ready for a different path to healing, join the veteran staff at MVP as we carry our 75 lb “Pig Egg” through the iconic locations of Montana in order to promote comradery, physical activity, adventure and tough-minded healing. Our trips are 2-4 day long expeditions with all food, equipment and suffering provided.
Pig Egg: A bag containing the nearly 7,000 dog tags from the men and women who honorably gave their lives serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“The only thing I can promise you is you’re going to get to know some fellow vets, you’re going to see a part of Montana that you’ve probably never seen before. I promise you that there is going to be pain and suffering in our trips and they are going to be challenging, but there is also going to be a reward and I think at the end of the day you will find that you will have a different perspective when you leave our program.”
Luke Urick, MVP Program Director
