a journey to the roof of Africa!

JUNE 2-12, 2019

The Warrior’s Keep is leading an expedition of 13 veterans to Tanzania, Africa this summer! The purpose of FREEDOM PEAK 1 is to provide a once in a lifetime opportunity for a group of local veterans to experience a journey to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. Standing at 19,340 feet, Kilimanjaro will challenge the body, mind and soul of each team member, while empowering them to overcome certain difficulties many veterans face at home, such as: depression, anxiety, societal reintegration, military transition or stress brought on from a traumatic experience. We have named this program FREEDOM PEAK 1 in honor of the tallest peak in Africa, Uhuru Peak. Uhuru is the Swahili word for freedom and it’s our hope that each participant achieves a sense of freedom while on this Tanzanian trek to the Roof of Africa! Be sure to follow our journey on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube!
