3rd annual Waterski Camp

Access Anything and Adaptive Adventures' 3rd Annual 'Behind the 'Boat' Adaptive Wakeboard and Waterski Camp was a huge success! With nearly twenty participants including three Steamboat locals and twice that many volunteers, as well as our generous donors and sponsors, this event continues to grow thanks to everyone's involvement.

We spent two days on Bald Eagle Lake and one day on the Colorado River, and the weather was perfect, although the mornings a little chilly. Thanks to Native Excavating's Ed and June McArthur for loan of the lake and their boat, this event is so special to us! Loud music on the boat encouraged participants to go big, and jumping the wake proved to be possible for many this year. We managed to lure in two new local participants new to the sport as well, and hope to see them back again next year! Our final day on the Colorado with Colorado River Center was a fantastic day in rafts and duckies with plenty of water-fights and laughter.

A special thanks to our food and lodging sponsors, this event is so successful because of you!
