Adventure Is For Everyone

“What does the challenged community need? Recreation!”

—Foster Andersen, Shared Adventures Founder

Here at Shared Adventures, we get people outdoors and moving beyond limitation. A non-profit organization dedicated to improving quality of life for those with disabilities, we believe that recreation, fun, challenge, and access to the outdoors are essential to health and fulfillment.

Girl with Autism learning archery
Thank you so much for your kind welcome of my grand-daughter Mira, my daughter Helen and I today at the archery range. It is not often we have been so completely accepted and drawn into participatory activity…The archery built her self-confidence and she left feeling better about herself. Thank you for all the great things you have done for this community.”


If you are living with physical and/or developmental challenges of any kind, we want to assist you in finding your adventure.
