Knowing No Boundaries
The Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte offers a ski workshop for Craig Hospital’s Adventure Program. Craig Hospital alumni are invited on an all-inclusive trip to discover or rediscover the sensation of skiing.
“The adaptive sports center is an outdoor adventure program based on getting people with disabilities and other special needs outside,” says Chris Read, Program Director of the Adaptive Sports Center in Crested Butte.
The objective of the ASC is to share their knowledge and love of outdoor recreation through lessons for people with disabilities. There are no boundaries on who is able to participate, which includes friends and family as well. But the X-Factor of this amazing program is the staff. A skilled team of professionally certified instructors in the therapeutic recreation field who on average have over seven years in the industry.
“Their people that are good at what they do and they are passionate about it,” says Chris Luna, former Craig patient and Adventure Program participant.
Colleen Farrell, instructor to Craig alum Trevor Kennison, is one of many instructors who validate excellence of the ASC staff. “I think one of the coolest things is being able to give somebody back their freedom,” says Colleen. Her initial involvement with working with people with disabilities came during an internship in North Lake Tahoe where she was introduced and fell in love with teaching people to ski with disabilities. Colleen is now in her 16th year with the ASC program.
“...it’s worth it for your self esteem, it’s worth it for happiness, and just to get out there and meet other people in a similar situation to you and to hear what they’ve been through inspires you to push yourself harder.”
