Community Kids Serving Gunnison County youth with disabilities This program engages local children with disabilities in outdoor recreation. By participating in outdoor activities, kids learn how to incorporate physical activity into their daily lives, while introducing them to new sports and healthy activities. The communication skills, self-confidence and empowerment gained while participating in these activities transfer into their daily lives and help them to become healthier, happier, and more productive students and individuals. “ I think it’s an awesome program, it really helps them with their school work because it gives them more confidence to do their work and it motivates them to get their work done. — Seth, High School Educational Assistant ” Throughout the summer, each participant will be mentored by Adaptive Sports Center instructors who will develop their skills in a variety of activites including biking, hiking, paddleboarding, rock climbing, and more. At the end of each season the ASC hosts a family day where each participant’s family is invited to join for inclusive activities, share the student’s success, and help the family come up with ways to participate in recreational activities outside of the program. This program supplements the amount of adaptive accommodation that the Crested Butte and Gunnison recreation departments need to provide. The ongoing sustainability of the Community Kids Program is critical to our community and its residents.
