Participate in one or more of our Seasonal Programs
We have skilled volunteers and the equipment to help participants have fun as they hone their skills.
Activities take place in the Franconia Notch area, local schools, and other public access venues and sites throughout the North Country of New Hampshire and Northeast Kingdom of Vermont
Adaptive climbing allows people with disabilities to reach new heights - quite literally! Whether climbing independently, with a side-climber, or using special adaptive climbing equipment, climbers of all abilities can learn new techniques on the wall. ASPNC has equipment for both sit down and stand up climbers. Indoor climbing is done at North Country Climbing Center in Lisbon, NH.
A variety of two-wheeled bicycles, three-wheeled recumbents, adaptive children’s bikes and handcycles are among the fleet of bikes that make this program a great option for children and adults of varying abilities. Group rides and private sessions take place on the Littleton Rail Trail in the summer and around Franconia Village in the spring and fall. Other locations are available upon request.
This success-oriented program is designed to develop basic swim skills in a structured setting with individualized support from two WSI certified instructors as well as trained volunteers. For participants who may be working on conquering their fear of the water to become more comfortable moving in and under it; new swimmers learning the skills needed to be safe and have fun in the water or swimmers looking to improve swim skills they may already have. Participants can compete in the Regional and State Special Olympics Swim meets.
