What is Beyond Boundaries?
The Beyond Boundaries Outdoor Adventure is progressive recreation program presented by Adaptive Adventures and the Spinal Cord Injury Association of Illinois. The program consists of three days and two nights of activities that bring together teams of spinal cord injured persons (ages 18-60) from rehabilitation hospitals.
Beyond Boundaries utilizes camping, hiking, cycling, kayaking, rock climbing, and other outdoor activities as tools designed to promote exercise, experiential learning, and socializing with their peers. This is a unique multi-day opportunity not currently being offered anywhere in the region. Individual participants are welcome and will be placed on a team.
A support group provides a mutual benefit to the entire group through shared information and support of one another. Along with family and medical support, there is nothing comparable to having peers. Talking with people who have been through similar situations and experiences is beneficial to the group as a whole. You will be welcomed in an environment that provides an opportunity to explore your inner thoughts and feelings without judgement, an awareness of common needs and strengths, as well as shared information. Support groups provide an active listening place and promote a sense of being understood.
