Camps for Brain Injury
Brain Injury Adventure Camps, for young adults with brain injury
The Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado and the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center (BOEC) have partnered together for over 20 years offering exciting and innovative adventure camps for adults with brain injury. The emphasis of these camps has always been to empower each participant, encourage independence and exceed perceived limitations. Participants of all recovery levels come together in a supportive environment to challenge themselves and encourage one another while having fun in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. Camps are about 5 days in length and feature outdoor adventure activities ranging from rafting, canoeing, rock climbing, hand cycling, skiing, ropes courses and more. The Challenge By Choice Adventure program is based in the mountains of Breckenridge at the BOEC’S beautiful and scenic Scott Griffith Lodge. The lodge sits on a quiet lake at the base of the Ten-Mile Mountains.
