AdVenture offers adaptive cycling rides from April to October along the beautiful Boise Greenbelt. These rides are designed as a group ride and are not a bike riding lesson however, proper trail manners and safety will be addressed.
Participants may ride their own cycle or use one of AdVenture's adaptive cycles. Participants who wish to use an AdVenture cycle must reserve it upon registration. Call (208) 608-7680 to discuss cycle options or schedule a time to try out the cycles.
All participants and volunteers must wear a helmet (which can be provided) while on an AdVenture ride.
This Paralympic Sport is a fast-paced and high contact team sport that is a lot of fun. Typically played by people with physical disabilities, the wheelchair rugby team loves when people without disabilities join as well. During practice you will learn the rules, develop your skills and scrimmage during this competitive practice time. Rugby wheelchairs are provided for your use. Youth under 18 may enroll if accompanied by an adult. It is currently held at Fort Boise Community Center.
Wheelchair Basketball is a fast-paced, fun, competitive sport. This is a great opportunity to learn the rules of the game, practice your skills and play pick-up games. Everyone is welcome; you do not need to have a disability to participate, sport wheelchairs are available. Youth under 18 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. The AdVenture Seeker Program offers wheelchair basketball at Fort Boise Community Center.
The Idaho Youth Adaptive Sports Camp (IYASC), is a camp that provides recreational and competitive opportunities for young athletes age 6 to 19 years of age with physical disabilities. Athletes from Idaho, Washington, Utah, Oregon, Montana and Wyoming have traveled to Boise just to attend this four-day sports camp. Youth who use a wheelchair, AFO braces, walker or crutches are welcome to attend. The IYASC exists to provide young athletes in wheelchair the opportunity to try new adapted sports and equipment. This is offered in partnership with St. Luke's Rehabilitation.
Whether you are learning to ski for the first time or relearning the sport after an accident, this is a great adventure. We will fit you to a single water ski, an adapted sit water ski or a tube depending upon your comfort and ability level. For their safety, prior to skiing and tubing, all participants are required to demonstrate that they are able to roll in the water from a face-down position to their backs while wearing a life jacket.
The adaptive rafting program is one of AdVenture's most popular programs. We take participants on multiple rivers including the Main and Cabarton sections of the Payette River and the Boise River. We've facilitated rafting opportunities for numerous people of varying abilities since 1985. We rely on experienced and dedicated volunteers to help keep the costs as low as possible for our participants. All AdVenture trips are led by the Adapted Recreation Coordinator and include volunteer support, meals, rafting equipment and transportation to and from Fort Boise Community Center and the rivers. Participants and/or their guardians will also need to sign the Rafting Waiver of Liability.
The AdVenture adaptive rafting season runs from June through August. Please see the Summer Activity Guide for trip dates.
The Wilderness Within Reach Fly-In is offered to individuals who have a physical disability that affects their mobility (those who use a wheelchair, walker, AFO braces, etc.) and one companion. We fly in small aircrafts into the Frank Church Wilderness and spend two nights at a remote ranch. Many thanks to the Idaho Aviation Foundation and the pilots for making this unique experience possible. At the request of the pilots, priority is given to people with physical disabilities who have not previously gone on a Wilderness Within Reach Fly-In trip.
Scholarships are available for youth, seniors and adults with disabilities to participate in activities and recreation.
