Splore Outdoor Adventures - National Ability Center

Join The Movement

Our world is evolving, and so is the National Ability Center.

We have the same heart, programs and inclusion you've come to know, but our purpose has grown and our logo has adapted. This new brand reflects our commitment to people with differing abilities. Our commitment to a strong vibrant community where everyone belongs. The mountain reflects challenges ahead of us all. Together we journey through them. Together we can unlock the true potential within each of us.

Get Out There

spore adventure programs iconSince the first river trip in 1977, Splore has been one of the pioneers in inclusive outdoor adventure. Our 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.

In 2017, Splore joined with the National Ability Center meaning you can sign up for a wide variety of adaptive adventure programs as well as adaptive outdoor sports, recreation and education programs all in one place!
