Description

                   

                      

 

Adaptive Adventures is proud to work with the Children's Oncology Services to bring adaptive skiing and snowboarding to Camp One Step.

From the moment a doctor utters the words “you have cancer”, time stands still and the images of that day are forever burned into memory. From that point forward, time accelerates and shuffling from appointment to appointment, hospital to hospital, and treatment to treatment takes over. A child’s perspective changes overnight, and everything is different at school, physically and emotionally, and he or she is instantly thrust into survival mode. But when children arrive at Camp One Step, everything changes once again. This time, life slows down as children are surrounded by other kids just like them. They share similar stories and inspiration is given free at every turn. New memories are etched into their lives and the kids get back to really living.

By offering fun, recreational and educational activities at camps held throughout the year, Camp One Step brings children together in a non-hospital setting where they find hope, support and understanding from their peers who understand a cancer diagnosis. Furthermore, we provide these camp opportunities for little to no cost to families.
