Vacation Adventures

Our Vacation Adventure trips provide opportunities for adults - age 18 years and older with disabilities to vacation with friends in the Northwest in a variety of settings. 

Our previous trips have been from 5-day tent camping to 2-day indoor lodge adventures. We have been to Orcas Island, Millersylvania, Long Beach, Twin Harbors, and Twanoh State Park just to name a few.
