BOEC is very proud of the number of participants we were able to serve in 2020-21 despite the ongoing pandemic. These numbers are skewed from a “normal” year due to the Adaptive Ski & Snowboard Program operating at half capacity, all residential Wilderness Programs being canceled over the 2020-21 winter, and limited programming during the 2021 summer.
*Please note that as offerings grow, several participants are starting to participate across both the Ski and Wilderness Programs, therefore some participants may be duplicated. This total participant number also includes military participants.
**Historically, participants have hailed from all 50 states + Washington, DC. BOEC continues to add to its list of international participants, as this year participants came from over 10 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico, Puerto Rico, United Kingdom and Venezuela.
***The Most commonly served disabilities in 2020-2021 were: At-risk youth, autism, ADD/ADHD, amputees, cleft lip & palate, cerebral palsy, developmentally/cognitive/learning disabled, Down syndrome, local youth suffering from social isolation, mental illness, multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and visually impaired.
