YOU can create possibilities for people with disabilities!

“Words cannot express the gratitude I have for my experience with you all this winter. The inclusivity on and off the mountain was like nothing I had experienced before, and to put it lightly… it far surpassed anything I could have dreamed of!” -Jessica Cohen, REC Participant

Challenge Aspen has continued to listen to participant needs and has responded in kind with services and year-round offerings. Challenge Aspen’s Recreational, Educational, Cultural (REC) program provides individuals and groups with physical and/or cognitive disabilities diverse opportunities to experience all that the Roaring Fork Valley has to offer.

In addition to the growing recreation programs for all abilities and ages, Challenge Aspen was at the forefront of offering adaptive recreation experiences to men and women with service related injuries beginning in 1999. After 9/11, the need for military opportunities in adaptive recreation grew dramatically, and Challenge Aspen established a military division developed exclusively for injured service members and their families. Today, Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities (CAMO) is one of the largest military adaptive recreation programs in the country. 

From the beginning, Challenge Aspen believed that access, community and participation were the keys to healing and establishing rewarding lives for those with disabilities. Challenge Aspen continues to carry those ideals forward as the organization connects, encourages, and inspires those with physical and/or cognitive disabilities.

All disabilities. All ages. All seasons

REC serves any individual, of any age, living with any disability and offers individuals and groups with physical and/or cognitive disabilities diverse opportunities to experience all that the Roaring Fork Valley has to offer.
