Disability Resources

Programs and Activities

Disability Resources offers 15+ different activities and sports for all ages and abilities. From year-round activities like dance and movement and sled hockey, to seasonal activities like water skiing and snow skiing, we are always looking to cater to your interests. If you have a suggestion for a program, let us know! We want to provide fun, engaging, confidence-building activities for you! 

Fun summer activities include: fishing, kayaking, rock climbing, basketball clinic, hip-hop dance, water skiing, cycling, and many social outings!

Membership

An annual membership fee of $50 will give you or your child:

  • Opportunity to participate in year-round athletic programs
  • Invitations to social outings including movies, dinner, concerts, and more
  • Access to adaptive equipment such as handcycles, sport wheelchairs, bi-skis, mono-skis, and bowling equipment.
  • Reduced rates on activities, special events, and equipment loans

Community Presentations

Whether addressing school children or business professionals, our presentations are designed to address questions, concerns and ideas about physical disabilities. Adapted play can also be incorporated to increase understanding and fun!

Veterans

CHD’s Disability Resources is open to everyone – especially those who have served our country. We are looking to work with a Vet’s Organization or a group of Vet’s to create a Veteran specific program. This could be an ongoing program or one-time event. If you have an idea or want to start  a discussion, please email disabilityresources@chd.org or call Jess at 413-788-9695.
