Since 1905, the NAC has offered individuals of “all ages and abilities” including those with “orthopedic, spinal cord, neuromuscular, visual and hearing impairments, and cognitive and developmental disabilities” the opportunity to participate in a multitude of outdoor activities. From alpine and Nordic Skiing, snowboarding snowshoeing, and horseback riding, to indoor indoor rock climbing, swimming, archery, sled hockey, cycling, water-skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, and challenge course activities, the NAC specialized equipment in an effort to “eliminate [the] isolation of individuals with disabilities.”
While friends and family are encouraged to participate as well, volunteers are also integral to the success, and ultimate enjoyment, of the program. The NAC does a fantastic job training volunteers in order to help provide “life-changing activities to people of all abilities.” If you are interested in volunteering, head over to their website which can be found here.
