Participate

We Offer Hiking, Fishing & Paddling Adventures

Our goal is to create a safe and fun adventure! All levels of experience and ability are welcome. Adaptable Outdoors staff and volunteers provide support as needed. Registration is open to adults of all ages and children ages 6+. We ask that children under the age of 12 be accompanied by a parent/guardian or caregiver. Family members, friends, or caregivers are welcome to attend with the participant (group sizes may be limited based on current COVID-19 regulations). Equipment for family members/friends/caregivers is not guaranteed, but they are welcome to bring their own if they have it.

Adaptable Outdoors staff/volunteers do not provide personal care (eg. feeding/toileting). For clients of any age needing assistance with personal care, we ask that a caregiver be present.

New Program for 2022

For 2022 we are starting a new project, our Monday Meet Up! This program offers opportunities for seniors with mobility or cognitive challenges to try adaptive yoga, wild wellness walks and forest therapy with certified program leaders. After each activity clients will also have the opportunity to try adaptive fishing if they wish, as events are held at Bobby Burns Fish Pond in Pincher Creek.

Although targeted at seniors these programs are also open to children and adults living with mobility and cognitive challenges.

All programs are free but pre-registration is required. To book one of these new exciting opportunities click the link below:

Introduction to our Research Project

This year clients have the ability to complete their first survey online, prior to coming out to the event. This will save time on the day and mean we can get on the trials and water quicker on program days. You can find the links to complete the pre-survey at the bottom of this page.

For a walkthrough of the survey process please watch this handy video created by our research team:
