Providing the opportunity for Winter recreation for children and adults of all abilities
Smugglers' Notch Adaptive Program
Our adaptive program provides therapeutic recreation for children and adults of all abilities.
Experiences are tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual. Some campers/students may require two counselors/instructors, while others may be appropriately paired with one counselor.
We also offer an inclusion program with our ski and snowboard programs for children. This gives a child with special needs the opportunity to socialize with his/her peers while still maintaining the support he/she needs through the adaptive program.
There is no age limit for the program. Half and full day lessons are available. Our highly trained instructors will evaluate each individual's needs and goals and determine their equipment requirements. Smugglers' adaptive program maintains an inventory of adaptive equipment including mono-skis, bi-skis and a slider. Snowboarding is also available.
What guests are saying...
"By far the best program we have found! Above and beyond our expectations - the staff was amazing and the quality of the program made our vacation!"
"As a father of a daughter with disabilities I am used to having to conform to the typical world, your program and the people involved in it adapted to my family and its needs. It was heartwarming for me. Thank you so much for your services."
