With a combination of specialized equipment and trained staff, our programs are designed to encourage people of all abilities to enjoy the outdoors together together. We provide opportunities to develop skills and share outdoor experiences in every season. Activities include: kayaking, canoeing, cycling, camping, and hiking. In winter we offer xc skiing, sit xc skiing, ice skating, sled skating, and snowshoeing.

Our programs are open to people of all ages and all abilities.  We have programs geared for people with disabilities and their family and friends, programs for seniors, and programs for veterans. See information about specific programs for eligibility.

Some of the disabilities represented at our programs include: age-related disabilities, amputee, autism, brain injury (acquired or traumatic), visual impairments, hearing impairments, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, muscular dystrophy, developmental disabilities, and psychiatric disabilities. The majority of our participants are adults; however, children participate in our programs frequently.
