Outdoor sports can and should be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. Common Ground Outdoor Adventures in Logan enhances the lives of youth and adults with disabilities through year-round, quality, outdoor recreation. They rally around the belief that our differences make us stronger and that together we can change the world.

Removing the physical, social, and financial barriers allows those with disabilities to participate in sports like cycling, rock climbing, canoeing, skiing, snowshoeing, and more. Common Ground Outdoor Adventures provides adaptive equipment and support to cross perceived limitations and build self-confidence. These skills carry over to employment opportunities, relationships, and active participation in the community.

They are committed to an inclusive environment and ensure safety, fun, and learning all while reducing the stereotypes society has about people with disabilities. With state-of-the-art equipment and experienced staff they are able to include everyone on the adventure. If you’d like to participate, donate, or learn more visit CGAdventures.org

SelectHealth recognizes the life enhancement provided by Common Ground Outdoor Adventures as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
