Adventure Days

Summer in Montana is time for outdoor adventures! If you love hiking, rafting, fishing, kayaking, rock climbing, music, camping, and hanging out with a great group of people, Adventure Days is for you. This program offers a mix of activities that get you outdoors and moving! For the summer of 2016 we will offer two, four week sessions with the campout in the middle of July. The hope is that the new schedule will make Adventure Days available to twice as many participants. The 2016 activity schedule will be posted by May 1st, at which time the staff will be excited to sign participants up for their adventures. Adventure Days is made possible by a grant from the Gilhousen Family Foundation.

Get your climb on! This is your opportunity develop your strength and see how high you can go. Rock climbing often tests a climber’s strength, endurance, agility and balance, along with mental control. We practice safe and proper climbing techniques and use specialized climbing equipment. This program is designed to encourage positive progression in each and every participant. Currently, we do not have the ability to climb outdoors, but due to Spire’s willingness to work with us, we are able to offer an indoor climbing program. This will run in line with the two Adventure Day Sessions every Thursday morning. Participants will need to be dropped off at the Spire Climbing Facility at 10:00am and pick up at 12:00pm. All necessary gear will be provided for the climber to rock on!

The Handcycling Program is for individuals with lower body impairment such as spinal cord injuries. The group meets at 6:00 Wednesday evenings through the summer (official dates TBD); ride routes are of varying difficulty throughout the Gallatin Valley. Additional activities include “Hub and Grub” nights (ride and potluck), a supported camping weekend with a ride followed by kayaking on a local lake. Riders are encouraged to have fun and set a goal for the season. For more information please contact Jenny Woodham.


Volunteer Information:

If you are an avid cyclist or just enjoy getting out to enjoy a summer evening on a bike, then we would love to have your company. The needs of the handcyclists are simple. Some need assistance getting bikes out of cars and others will need help getting set up on a borrowed bike. Since these cycles are low to the ground, we have a volunteer to each cyclist. If you like tinkering or working on bikes, we could definitely use you! Volunteer applications and background check information can be found here, and training will be held May 11th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
