Adaptive Adventures - Adaptive Sports and Recreation

Founded in 1999, Adaptive Adventures was created to provide life-changing opportunities for individuals with physical disabilities and their families. Through freedom of mobility, the organization empowers individuals and helps them build the confidence and gain the inspiration to accomplish their life goals.

To date, the organization has built a strong community of over 2,000 participants taking part in more than 200 year-round programs. With your help, we will impact the lives of many more individuals so they can become unstoppable in the pursuit of their dreams.

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! 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).
