Outdoor Sport Experiences for Every Ability

Accessibility is about exploring your own potential

It's about stretching limits, not accepting them.

Four Corners Algonquin prioritizes flexible, adaptive &
inclusive strategies 
for development across ages, stages and abilities.

 

Because we know you can do this and we want to be there when you do!

Adaptive and accessible camping and sport isn't just about creating options for people with physical impairments. In fact, it's not actually about impairment at all.

It's a way of thinking about the space we occupy that makes it universally useful to people of all ages, stages and abilities. It's about keeping things and activities within reach of the range of human abilities across the lifespan. It's about flexibility.

That means, for example, making sure the options we offer appeal to all our friends:

experts & novices, children & seniors, the neurotypical & neurodivergent, risk-takers & risk-avoiders, the gender-variant, and of course, also the handicapable. It's about meeting people where they are so they can get to where they want to be.

Adaptive Camping and Sport

Thanks to Federal funding through the Enabling Accessibility Grant program, we are pleased to offer guests the following accessible and adaptive experiences and services.

  • Fully accessible unisex comfort station: each toilet and shower is private for your comfort and safety, and large enough to navigate with assistive devices or with a support person

  • On-site gravel trails that are wheelchair accessible

  • Accessible tent(s) with beds

  • Hippocampe all-terrain wheelchair rental, suitable for use on trails marked 'easy'

  • Mobichair water wheelchair for use at nearby beaches

  • Electric bicycles for cycling experiences (coming in late 2020/early 2021)

  • Designated support persons and support animals are always welcome at no charge - ask for details

If you would like to know more about our accessibility features or would like specific assistance, please call. If you recognize an adaptive opportunity that you would find helpful, please tell us about it! We take new steps every year to make our facility more inclusive.
