Join Adaptive Adventures and Scheck & Siress for our summer long series of kayaking, cycling and rock climbing opportunities designed for Scheck & Siress clients to fill the summer with fun and fitness. Whether you have an amputation, a spinal cord injury, limited mobility due to MS or other physical conditions, we have opportunities for you and your family.

You can bring your own equipment or use ours. We will have both our kayak trailer and cycling trailers full of all the equipment necessary for an enjoyable event.
