Description

As the Coronoavirus (COVID-19) expands across the United States, there is a chance that programming and events with Adaptive Adventures may be impacted.

 

For the health and safety of all involved in our programs, we ask that if you are not feeling well to please refrain from attending the program. We are working diligently to help stop the spread of seasonal illnesses within our community. Please make sure you are registering ahead of time for programs. This will help ensure you receive updates from us and will help us be prepared to serve you.

Adaptive Climbing:

Climbing fosters an amazing sense of community, trust, courage, and accomplishment. It can be easily adapted to almost any ability level. Through climbing, you can break through barriers and summit to new heights. Whether you have an amputation, spinal cord injury, visual impairment or limited mobility due to CP, SB, MS, MD or other physical conditions, we have climbing opportunities for you! Adaptive Adventures is currently offering programs for children (ages 8+), youth, adults, and veterans.

Costs:

Participant: $9.00 (Paid at the door) Price includes essential climbing equipment, instruction, and lots of fun!
