UMaine to offer adaptive climbing sessions at Maine Bound
Orono, Maine — The University of Maine in partnership with the Adaptive Outdoor Education Center’s Horizons Alpine Climbing Program will offer adaptive climbing at the Maine Bound Adventure Center throughout the spring semester.
The program is designed to provide assistance and accommodations for individuals with cognitive or physical differences and will include weekly adaptive climbing sessions on Wednesday evenings, as well as other events.
To make the program a success, Maine Bound is recruiting a group of passionate and dedicated volunteers to work with participants. Volunteer registration is online.
Maine Bound will host an Adaptive Climbing Volunteer Training and Community Climbing Day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11 for anyone who is interested in becoming a volunteer for the program.
The community climbing portion, from 1 to 5 p.m., is designed to give volunteers hands-on experience working with participants. Event registration is on the AOEC website.
Participation in the weekly climbing sessions is free for volunteers, UMaine Recreation members and students; $5 for nonmembers.
The program is made possible by collaborations between Maine Bound; AOEC; and UMaine’s Office of Veterans Education and Transition Services, Office of Student Accessibility Services, and Bodwell Center for Service and Volunteerism.
