Open to veterans only, Coed
In partnership with Telluride Adaptive Sports Program:
BOEC and the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program (TASP) are teaming up once again to offer a unique overnight river trip on the San Juan River.  As two national leaders in outdoor adventure join forces, the rafting trip is bound to be memorable.  Our staff are uniquely skilled and highly trained in working with many different disabilities, highly skilled safety managers on rivers and in remote environments, and gifted at creating fun, powerful and empowering experiences with young people and adults.

Who:  The BOEC and TASP extends a special invitation to guest/invitees of military veterans.  The program is designed to accommodate veterans who have sustained a moderate to significant injury.  Injuries may include, but are not limited to, brain injuries, PTSD, and/or amputees.  Due to the social aspect of outdoor adventures and camping, participants must be ready to enjoy the company of other people (including raft guides).

What: A classic western river trip format will be utilized. Floating down river in rafts will provide access to a true wilderness environment while providing the ability to serve veterans who have mobility restrictions. An educational component will also be included by providing exposure to the prehistoric culture of the four-corners region.

Where: The trip will be conducted on the San Juan River in southeast Utah through beautiful desert canyon country and offers mild to moderate white water that is suitable for vets with significant injury and families with kids. Sandy beaches and camps, ancient rock art and beautiful scenery will be highlights of the trip.

Why:  A multi-day river trip is an ideal setting for military veterans to reintegrate, acquire new knowledge and skills together, create bonds, and have fun together, and relax.  Away from everyday routines and daily life distractions one can find new appreciations for life and rediscover their strength and solidity as we travel down the beautiful San Juan River.
