We welcome inquiries from participants and volunteers from anywhere in the US.  Our therapeutic programs are an opportunity to build friendships; gain confidence, accomplish physical feats you did not think possible, earn field work credits and have more fun than you thought imaginable! Partial scholarship funding awarded based on needs and availability of funds.

NEWS!  Registered nurses from Craig Rehabilitation Hospital in Englewood, CO, who have experience with brain injury survivors and their needs, will be volunteering at our Challenge by Choice Adventure Therapeutic Programs this year.
