Adaptive Adventures was founded in 1999 by two individuals with physical disabilities. They saw a need for adventure and sport opportunities outside of competitive adaptive sports for people with physical disabilities. Adaptive Adventures has served over 100,000 participants and their families from all 50 states.
Adaptive Adventures’ main office is located in Lakewood, Colorado, with a satellite office in Franklin Park, Illinois. Adaptive Adventures provides ongoing programs, camps, and clinics in cycling, climbing, kayaking, paddleboarding, skiing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, sailing, scuba, rafting, and dragon boat racing.
The non-profit offers a unique mobile program. Unlike site-based adaptive sports programs, Adaptive Adventures travels the country with 15 trailers filled with adaptive equipment, providing programs to underserved areas of the country. They also provide programs in 23 states, collaborating with over 150 community partners across the country, including: rehab hospitals, park districts, VA medical centers, military hospitals, veteran service organizations, and other adaptive sport programs. They believe in FREEDOM through mobility for their participants and in their program structure.
Their programming is offered to participants and their families free of charge or significantly subsidized. Adaptive Adventures believes cost should never be a barrier to someone’s participation in quality outdoor adaptive sport opportunities.
