  • Splore -Adaptive Adventures in Utah
    Splore’s mission is to change lives by challenging and expanding one’s notion of ability through meaningful outdoor adventure. In order to get the most out of life, one must have the confidence to try new things, and have a sense of the possibilities life holds for them. We do this by empowering and instilling greater confidence in our participants through canoeing, rock climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, and rafting adventures. Splore trips leave participants with an expanded sense of what they can accomplish both individually and as a family.
