What's Happening at Waypoint Adventure

Private Lessons Summer 2020

It’s been a wild summer! Covid-times are hard times for sure, but the silver lining for us at Waypoint has been these private lessons! Check out pictures and some cool things we’ve noticed! Participants are progressing in skills! We’ve been able to focus more on teaching directly to a participant’s skill set and learning style. On one kayaking lesson, we spent over 40 minutes with a participant near the shore breaking down the steps of kayaking very carefully and methodically – adding color cues to her paddle, arrows on white boards, writing out steps, and wading into the water next

SITES

Trails getting crowded? Try ours! We contacted the interactive map service, MapMe.com, and explained that we wanted to put out a resource that would help our community get outside with notes about trail types, accessibility, parking, and more, and they donated a free membership due to the circumstances! We’re so grateful to partner with a company that believes in the power of the outdoors and the importance of sharing resources during this time! Thank you MapMe​!

Wheelchair Rental Program

As Covid-19 restrictions continue, people are turning to their local parks, trails, and green-spaces for solace – a chance to get out of the house, get exercise, and boost mental health. Unfortunately, not everyone has access to these trails! One mom called to say that her son’s day program is cancelled indefinitely! Her son has limited verbal communication and relies heavily on faces and people and social interaction for his happiness. “We are going to go stir crazy!” she said. “I need to get him outside.” We want to help. We have 10 different styles of off-road wheelchair for every

COVID-19 Action at Waypoint

Dear Waypoint Community, The safety and well-being of our participants, employees, and community is our highest priority.

Carter School Partnership

At Waypoint Adventure, we talk about the importance of community all the time. There is no better example of this than on our programs with the Carter School. The Carter School is a Boston Public School high school for students with both severe, intensive disabilities and complex health needs. Carter students and their families participated in hiking and kayaking programs last spring. Three communities came together to make these programs possible: the Carter School, the Snowden International School, and Waypoint Adventure. All Carter students and their families were given the chance to participate on a program in the Blue Hills

GROWTH FOR LIFE

GROWTH FOR LIFE Dear Waypoint Community, Due to caronavirus concerns, we have canceled our April 2nd Annual Fundraiser. We will be releasing virtual alternatives that will still celebrate our 10-year anniversary, bid farewell to Co-Founder Adam Combs, and raise important funds. We will be sharing video messages from three members of the community that were selected as event speakers in the coming weeks to explain why Waypoint creates opportunities that allow growth for life. I’m sure you can imagine this is a difficult reality, especially given that this is our biggest fundraiser throughout the year, bringing in 35% of our annual
