About us

Nonprofit Mission, DEI Statement, & Author's Credentials

Adaptive Expeditions is an interactive educational nonprofit using sport and recreation to offer health & wellness programs to individuals with physical and sensory disabilities. Through education and outdoor recreation adventures, Adaptive Expeditions empowers individuals with both technical skills and personal confidence to maintain active, independent lifestyles.  Learn more on our website: AdaptiveExpeditions.org.

In our hometown and around the world we aim to build communities where outdoor adventure seekers and Paralympic hopefuls can share ideas and common experiences, have fun, push limits, and redefine what’s possible.

DEI Statement: “Adaptive Expeditions celebrates the fact that all people are not the same.  In order to form a more perfect union that serves everyone, we draw on the differences in who we are, what we’ve experienced, how we think, how we mobilize, and how we define and measure success.”

This online course series was created by Adaptive Expeditions' Executive Director, Joe Moore, JD, LLM.  All courses were peer reviewed by 5 members of the American Canoe Association Universal Paddling Committee, education staff from multiple national disability sport organizations, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and medical doctors.  
The courses were created with grant funding from Craig H. Neilsen Foundation.
