About Us

Our Mission

Our Vision & Values

Eliminating Barriers FOR ALL

We are a non-profit organization based out of Nanaimo, B.C that designs and implements adaptive and inclusive outdoor recreation programs that enable all people the opportunity to actively participate in outdoor recreation. Research has shown the immense impact time spent in our natural surroundings has on our overall health and well-being, however, many individuals find themselves at a massive disadvantage when attempting to access trails and enroll in various outdoor recreation programs.

We are here to change the standard in accessible outdoor recreation by eliminating barriers and providing quality supportive programs; we are continually evolving and growing alongside our participants.

Access to the GREAT OUTDOORS

Our vision is to be an integral part of creating a future where we can all freely access the great outdoors, pursuing and creating our own local adventures on  Vancouver Island, BC.

Our Values: Respect / Integrity / Authenticity / Community / Adventure / Compassion
