Adaptive Adventures - Adaptive Sports and Recreation

 Adaptive Adventures is now in its 12th year of creating life changing opportunities for people with physical disabilities. Adaptive Adventures opens the doors to hope and allows people to realize their dreams. Program participants enjoy fresh air, rushing water, and abundant sunshine as they glide down ski slopes, cut through the water in a kayak or wakeboard, or bike through the Rocky Mountains and along the shores of Lake Michigan.

Adaptive Adventures has something for everyone. We offer progressive programs for children, teens, adults, as well as service members (active duty and veteran) who have been severely injured in Iraq and Afghanistan or other conflicts. We offer programs that cover a wide-range of physical disabilities including people with spinal cord injuries, amputations, Cerebral Palsy, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spina bifida, and visual impairment.

Our programs are about more than athletic skills and recreational experiences…they are about life! Through the freedom of mobility, we see people build confidence and independence and become inspired to pursue their personal goals and aspirations in all areas of their lives from school, work, family, fitness, health, and recreation. Our programs also help build social skills that help people of all ages improve their relationships with family, peers, and their community.

We are proud that Adaptive Adventures programs are widely recognized as adaptive programs of superior quality, efficiency, and innovation. Our board and staff are committed to pursuing our mission and making dreams a reality. We look forward to the next 10 years.

The organization has offices in Colorado and Illinois. For more information on Adaptive Adventures, check out the website or call 847.251.8445 (Chicago) or 303.679.2770 (Colorado).
