Who We Are
Adaptive Adventures is a national 501c3 nonprofit organization headquartered out of Colorado with an additional office in Illinois.
We provide progressive outdoor sports opportunities to improve quality of life for children, adults and veterans with physical disabilities and their families.
Outdoor sports are empowering. That’s the idea that brought our founders together. As individuals with physical disabilities, they quickly reached another belief: These sports should be accessible to everyone.
Twenty years later, Adaptive Adventures is the world’s largest nonprofit mobile outdoor adaptive sports provider. We’ve helped over 100,000 participants find independence, overcome trauma and establish purpose — thanks to these core principles:
We’ll come to you
To date, we’ve served rehab hospitals, park districts, community gyms and other organizations across all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico.
We’ll provide what you need
Our customized activities, innovative equipment, staff training and continuous resources help further inclusion for individuals and communities.
We promote greater health outcomes and independence for individuals with physical disabilities by providing outdoor adventure education, programming and adaptive equipment.
We establish sustainable programs across the nation by bringing together participants, caregivers, and allies through collaboration and thoughtful mentorship.
We champion the journey to a more accepting world through innovative equipment design, inclusion trainings, and organizational consulting.
Truly empowering someone though, requires more than just one-off events. We establish long-term services with communities by building infrastructure that serves generations.
That’s how we help people truly redefine their limits. That’s Freedom through Mobility.
