Volunteers are the lifeblood of Challenge Aspen. More than 75 volunteers foster, support, and accommodate the physical and emotional needs of our disabled guests and safely assist in the operation of the indoor and outdoor recreational opportunities made available by Challenge Aspen. Challenge Aspen serves our guests and families in the Recreational, Educational, Cultural (REC) program, and disabled veterans and families through the Challenge Aspen Military Opportunities (CAMO) program.

Being a volunteer with Challenge Aspen is a life-changing opportunity, and the inspiration that volunteers take with them is undeniable. Volunteers have the opportunity to change lives and to be personally moved in the process, reaping the benefits of interacting with people of all abilities while also being able to take full advantage of the varied outdoor activities offered on the mountain.
