The Calabogie Adaptive Ski Program was established in 2003. As a member of the Canadian Adaptive Snowsports, (CADS) National Capital Division, they take pride in providing people with disabilities the opportunity to learn the basics of downhill skiing.
In addition to supporting Calabogie’s “Weekday School Program”, approximately 20 CADS Certified volunteer instructors assisted by 40 to 50 trained volunteers offer a Sunday morning and afternoon skiing program to children and adults with disabilities.
Our focus is on ability, not disability.
In addition to learning how to ski, the program’s goals are to increase self-awareness and confidence for those individuals who normally might be shut-ins during the winter months. As a charitable organization, this program requires a good number of volunteers to run; for those returning your continued support is appreciated.
For Registration or Volunteer information please contact the Calabogie Adaptive Program. Please go to www.cads-ncd.ca/calabogie/Calabogie_home.html for contact info.
