The Adaptive Sports Center is committed to serving our community through the following programs: Community Kids, Locals Program, and Six Points. COMMUNITY KIDS SUMMER DAY CAMP An inclusive camp for youth with disabilities and their peers Fridays: July 8 – August 19, 2022 Our summer day camp welcomes local kids, as well as second homeowners’ and visitors’ kids (or grandkids) who want to participate in one or more of our scheduled camp days this summer! These camps are for kids with disabilities, ages 5-18, and are inclusive to siblings, cousins, and friends with or without disabilities. For seven fun Fridays, kids will enjoy peer interaction and build upon social skills with others. Adaptive Sports Center instructors become a positive role model and help to develop and further skills in a variety of activities including rafting, ropes course, hiking, paddleboarding, rock climbing, and more*. By engaging kids with disabilities in outdoor activities with their peers, they 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. At the end of each season the ASC hosts a family day where each participant’s family is invited to join for activities, share the student’s success, and help the family come up with ways to participate in recreational activities outside of the program. As an additional benefit to the Gunnison Valley, the Community Kids Program alleviates 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 citizens. SCHEDULE Cost: Suggested rate is $50 per day.ASC list rate for a full day of programming is $125/person.

Who: These camps are for kids with disabilities, ages 5-18, and are inclusive to siblings, cousins, and friends with or without disabilities.
