Adventure Skills Workshop 2019

The annual Adventure Skills Workshop was held at Camp ASCCA over the weekend by the Shepherd Center. The event held here every year in May is described on the Center’s website as “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).” The Shepherd Center staff works with the Camp ASCCA staff to offer common outdoor based programs for participants to enjoy in a more adaptive environment as well as new activities that they may have never experienced before.

The Shepherd Center brings its own staff of volunteers and students studying therapeutic recreation from around the state. Every year, participants travel in to Jacksons Gap from around the country, and our staff have the opportunity to hear their stories. The weekend was setup full of activities like scuba diving, water skiing, target shooting, fishing and much more. The cheers and smiles between participants, family, friends and staff are the best part of the week as we have the opportunity to enjoy incredible experiences together on the banks of Lake Martin.

This is a session we look forward to every year, and the Shepherd Center’s ASW 2019 was a weekend to remember! Click here to visit the Shepherd Center website and learn more about the programs they offer.
