Adventure Skills Workshop 2018

Over the weekend, the Shepherd Center hosted the Adventure Skills Workshop that is held here at Camp ASCCA every year in May. As described by the Center’s website, ASW is “a fun-filled spring weekend designed for people with spinal cord injury or disease, acquired brain injury, multiple sclerosis, spina bifida, post-polio syndrome, Guillain-Barré syndrome, transverse myelitis or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).” Participants are given the opportunity to experience programs they’ve always loved in an adaptive environment as well as new activities.

Each year, the Shepherd Center brings a staff of its own volunteers as well as student volunteers from around the state who are studying therapeutic recreation. The participants attending ASW this year traveled from 14 different states and even Canada, and we were excited to work alongside the Shepherd Center to offer an incredible weekend. This year’s event was packed full of water activities like open swimming, scuba diving, water skiing, tubing and more. We can’t forget to mention the plethora of land activities like target shooting, skeet shooting, quad rugby, fishing, an animal encounter and plenty more. There was certainly no time to rest because of all the excitement that came with every second, and there was an endless amount of smiles and cheers as everyone had a chance to get back to the activities that they have loved forever.

We look forward to this event with the Shepherd Center every year, and ASW 2018 came with an energy level that was unforgettable! Click here to visit their website and learn more about the incredible work they do throughout the year.
