Camps for Developmental/Other Disabilities

Wilderness Camp

The Crew

This course is geared for young men and women, 16 – 25 years old, with developmental and other disabilities. It is a multi-day, 23-mile flat-water canoe trip down Ruby and Horsethief Canyons on the Colorado River.  Through outdoor activities and established experiential education models, participants will have the opportunity to develop canoe skills, social skills, teamwork and independence that will transfer into everyday life. This program requires that all participants be independent with self-care tasks. This is a mobile course based in the Grand Junction area of Colorado, entering Utah for a few miles via canoe and river. Students will be involved in paddling, navigation, camp set up, cooking, cleaning and river & camp equipment care during the course.  The emphasis will be on having fun in a structured, supportive setting.


CamPossible is for kids with cerebral palsy (CP) ages 8-12. The 3-day camp, a program of Children’s Hospital Colorado and hosted by BOEC, is designed to meet the unique needs of these children. This camp will adapt activities to foster success and a sense of achievement while camping with peers in a mountain setting.
