Camps for Multiple Sclerosis

AWI

Adventures Within Inc. (AWI) has organized outdoor experiences for people with MS for over 20 years.  Charlotte Robinson-Pritchard founded AWI, a non-profit organization, with the mission of providing physically challenging yet achievable outdoor experiences and supportive environments for the development of inner strength and courage.  Charlotte believed that the magic of the outdoors and adventure activities greatly enhance the lives of people with MS and improve their ability to manage the disease.  Both adults and children have enjoyed these programs over the years, many of which have been conducted in partnership with the BOEC.  Now Charlotte has handed the baton of AWI over to the BOEC to continue this long and proud tradition.  The BOEC will also continue to partner with the Rocky Mountain Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Center, based in Englewood, to offer these exciting camps.

BOEC offers two Adventures Within camps, one to enjoy the snowy mountains and one to enjoy all the mountains offer in the summer.

The Adventures Within multi-day programs are based out of the BOEC’s accessible Scott Griffith Lodge and include outdoor adventure activities such as white water rafting, high ropes course, adaptive cycling and rock climbing in the summer and alpine and Nordic skiing in the winter.  In addition, a flexible schedule enables time for reading, relaxing, fishing and enjoying the beauty and peace of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Not only are Adventures Within programs designed for outdoor recreation but they also provide attendees and their families a healthy and supportive environment for discussion and reflection upon individual experiences as someone living with MS.  These times are ideal for sharing stories, expressing joys and frustrations and providing others with valuable resources.  Attendees are invited to bring a spouse, friend or other guest who provides them with support.

During the week, participants will savor delicious and nutritious home cooked meals, breathe in fresh mountain air and enjoy a relaxing stroll (or invigorating walk) around the Old Town Reservoir, located just outside the door!
