Camp Paradox is an event for adults, teenagers, and/or children with physical disabilities, along with their families members and loved ones, to camp with other individuals and families who have shared similar experiences. |
Camp culture operates on a "challenge by choice" philosophy, whereby all participants, both disabled and non-disabled, can choose to challenge themselves with activities like a ropes course, hiking excursions, camp games and team building exercises, evening campfires and more. The idea is to experience personal growth and inspiration through nature and activities that will strengthen the spirit within you and the community of people in your life.
Camp Paradox Colorado Springs will be held at a beautiful campground in Cheyenne Mountain State Park and at the Inner Limit Adventures Ropes Course Fri Aug 9 - Sun, Aug 11, 2013. Full times, details, directions, and more will be sent after you have registered. See info on the ropes course at www.innerlimitadventures.com.
The registration fee is $30 for one person or a discounted price of $50 if you sign up with a friend or family member and up to 2 kids (up to 4 people - 2 adults and 2 kids - for $50!).
Your registration fee covers:
- delicious meals: breakfasts, lunches and dinners
