Jackson Co is now the home of Camp Hero Kentucky, a retreat type healing place for wounded veterans and first responders. This property will be used several times a year to bring in wounded heroes and sometimes children of these heroes to do some outdoor therapy in the form of hunting, fishing, hiking, caving etc. Recently a group of children from Florida came up for a weekend of Kentucky hospitality while learning things about themselves and the great outdoors. If you would like more information about Camp Hero, either as a volunteer, sponsor, encourager please contact them on Facebook at Camp Hero Kentucky, Campheroky.org or contact Jackson Co Tourism at firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be "working" days in the spring to build a firepit, trail maintenance, improving camp sites etc. If a church or civic group would be interested in providing a meal over one of these weekends, please let us know.
