Paddle Into Summer Course SheetJoin the BOEC and Blue Skies Behavioral Group (BSBG) for 4 days on the water, June 27-30, with Paddle Into Summer! Participants, ages 9-14 with exceptional needs, will enjoy a variety of water-based activities, including paddle boarding, lake paddling, a full day of whitewater rafting on the Upper Colorado River, and land-based activities such as the ropes course and rock climbing. Adaptive participation and behavioral needs will be supported by BOEC staff and BSBG’s Board Certified Behavior Analyst.

All participants will be responsible for bringing packed lunches each day, as well as a water bottle, sunscreen, and a baseball or otherwise sun-protecting hat. Participants will be dropped off at BOEC’s Scott Griffith Lodge in Breckenridge each morning, and transportation will be provided when leaving the site. We will be spending most of the time outside every day, so in addition to what is listed above, please send participants with everything they may need to stay comfortable. Closed-toed shoes will be needed for hiking and activities.
