Rock ClimbingExperience the great outdoors by getting up close and personal with some rocks! Our trained rock climbing facilitators will outfit each participant with the necessary gear to scale “the crag.” Climbing is a great way to work both your body and mind to achieve heights never imagined. The NEDS facilitator will adapt the climb to the individual student's skill level by using rope assists, adaptive harnesses and guides!
Kayaking, Canoeing, and Stand Up PaddleboardingTake to the water! Paddling is a great way to explore the White Mountain Region.

"SUPing" is where one stands on an inflatable board utilizing a single bladed paddle to propel them through the water. Whether kayaking, canoeing or paddling, students will enjoy the day on the water with friends, professional facilitators having fun and enjoying the beauty of the White Mountains.

Archery is a sport accessible to just about everyone with a disability. While it is not only fun to challenge yourself to hitting the target, it’s also physically beneficial, increasing body strength, focus, flexibility, and attention skills. For most participants, very little adaptive equipment is necessary, depending on ability. All ages welcome!
