Stay warm and active this fall with AdVenture. This adaptive recreation program is offered by Boise Parks & Recreation. Individuals with disabilities are welcome to sign up for ANY program offered. They can provide accommodations such as sign language interpreters, enhanced staff, etc. so anyone can fully participate. However, the AdVenture Seeker programs are designed specifically for people with physical disabilities and their friends and families who are seeking a bit more adventure with less staff supervision.
Classes include such activities as winter sports, dance, self defense, art, fitness, and ice skating. Social clubs provide another component with opportunities and outings for adults with intellectual disabilities. These include bowling nights, holiday parties, game nights, dinner and a movie, and even field trips to hot springs.
Wheelchair basketball and rugby is also offered. These sports give you a chance to get out of the cold, learn the rules of the game, practice your skills and then play a few pick-up games. Wheelchairs are provided.
Rugby is one of the fastest growing wheelchair sports. All skill levels are welcome. A drop-in rate is available too. And juniors don’t have to miss out on these fun adaptive sports. Youth 6-19 who use a wheelchair, AFO braces, walkers or crutches are welcome to try adaptive sports such as swimming, wheelchair tennis, basketball and rugby.
AdVenture offers a variety of adaptive recreation opportunities for groups as well. They can find a program that meets your group’s specific needs and goals.
In order to provide the best possible service to participants, advance registration is required for all programs. To sign up call 208-608-7680. Sometimes courses fill up or are cancelled because people wait too long to register. Boise Parks & Recreation offers percentage based financial scholarships for qualified youth and adults with disabilities. Scholarship applications may take up to two weeks to process, so turn in your form before you wish to register for programs.
