STARS Kids Camp in Steamboat

The STARS acronym will come to have two meanings in Steamboat very soon. This coming March, Steamboat's new adaptive program STARS (Steamboat Training Adaptive Recreation Sports), that has begun to replace 30-yr old Steamboat Adaptive starting this year, will be hosting its first kids ski camp for children with disabilities in conjunction with Adaptive Adventures and Access Anything.

This camp is also part of the Stars of Tomorrow Youth Ski Camp series with Adaptive Adventures, although the STARS name didn't come from this. STARS was started by Steamboat local Dave Wickman and its board is excited to get the first event under its belt this spring.

Starting March 21st, this new camp will bring three days of fun, sun, and snow to a dozen kids from across the state and country, and will include several Steamboat local rippers as well.

For more about this coming event, visit Adaptive Adventure's webpage for it.

STARS will also be training instructors and volunteers throughout the year. If you'd like to volunteer for this event, please contact us to put you in touch with the right person!
