Camp BullWheel is the only place in the world where an individual with a high spinal cord injury can independently cast a rod and line from a boat. This incredible feat is the result of decades of innovative engineering work. Recent grants have helped to expand our fleet of accessible boats allowing even more individuals with spinal cord injuries and their companions to experience the beauty of the Madison Valley.

Effective June 1, 2022, Camp Bullwheel has partnered with the Montana Independent Living Project,  Partnering with Camp Bullwheel will provide access to the outdoors that most people with disabilities only dream about.

Beginning This Year 2022

Camp Bullwheel Supporters-

 

Our transition has moved to the next level as we now have a resident onsite who will manage Camp for upcoming guests this summer. Dave Poole is learning the ropes with great enthusiasm, both around camp and out on the river, his mastery of his wheelchair truly remarkable. Dave represents the strength and  determination that defines our camp, and the empowerment of our guests- the very mantra of the Montana Independent Living Project.  

 

Next weekend Camp Bullwheel will host a dozen staff from miLp with a camp-out and orientation of Camp Bullwheel.

 

None of this would be possible without the support of community, donors, past guests, and our board. 

 

The early support of our vision, beginning in September of 2017 has been invaluable and I would like to personally thank the following, some still active and others, having done their part to begin the dream-

  • Karen and Paul McMullin
  • Jackie Kirtley
  • Susan Campbell
  • Dave and Becky Hall
  • Tom Riggs
  • Randy Dix
  • Jerry Horn
  • Chuck Lambert 
  • Dawn Perrine
  • Jim Dreyfous
  • Rick Sline and Anna Boulton
  • Ty Wheeler
  • Guy Liechty

 Your help along with Peter‘s undaunted commitment to helping people with disabilities is responsible for this amazing evolvement.

A heart-felt thanks.

 In Spirit, Frank Bell

Note that while we will continue to host limite  d guests at our facility, our goal is to help sportsmen find suitable lodging in the Madison Valley and adjacent fishing communities in southwestern Montana.

We will continue to be providers of adaptive fishing equipment and watercraft.
