TRAIL TIMEOUTS + ADAPTIVE ADVENTURES
Our Trail Timeouts + Adaptive Adventures Program help others in need.
Trail Timeouts - ACA members take a break from adventuring and volunteer to better our community. We've volunteered at Denver Children's Home for 6 years to provide home cooked meals to the kids and staff.
Trail Timeouts - ACA members volunteer to work on local trails or highways to keep Colorado Clean.
Adaptive Adventures - We've partnered with Extreme Motus - Natures Accessible Wheelchair. The Always Choose Adventures Gear Library has TWO Extreme Motus Wheelchairs! Anyone with a disability can borrow one FREE of charge!
ANGUISH TO ADVENTURES
Our Anguish to Adventures Program is designed to offer ACA-members the opportunity to engage in virtual or in-person nature therapy sessions.
These sessions are facilitated by Adrienne Petrie, a licensed mental health professional, and co-founder of Peregrine Counseling and Wellness. Adrienne has extensive training and experience in EMDR Level II, child-parent psychotherapy, maternal mental health, trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
Our collaboration with Peregrine Counseling and Wellness is grounded in the belief that nature and outdoor activities can serve as a catalyst for healing, allowing individuals to focus on their mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.
