Programming

Peace of Adventure programs are uniquely designed to bring veterans and civilians with disabilities together through the power of recreation. Utilizing multi-day adventures in the mountains of Colorado and North Carolina, we believe our adventures serve as a great catalyst to a long-term plan for care and connection among participants. Peace of Adventure is committed to sustainable growth and development through peer support, and continues to work with industry professionals to develop an innovative curriculum designed to bring our squads together as a family.

In order to participate in Peace of Adventure programming, applicants must commit one year of post-adventure accountability with their respective squads as well as with Peace of Adventure staff. Following a week of adventure, Peace of Adventure plants participants back into their communities with an action plan to remain connected to self, mentor/mentee, squad and community. The uniqueness of our programs enables us to empower continued service in the veteran population while opening doors and providing mentors for the disability community.

Peace of Adventure believes the best way to serve our veteran community is to continue empowering them to serve others. The best example of a selfless leaders in today’s society are veterans and veterans are exceptionally-suited to assist the disability community into discovering what is possible.

Upcoming Events

April 24-28, 2017: CAROLINA MOUNTAIN BIKING
With support from Moore & Van Allen PLLC, Peace of Adventure is partnering with The Bike Farm in Pisgah Forest, North Carolina for an introductory mountain bike clinic for individuals with disabilities. Peace of Adventure will be calling on a group of veteran from the Charlotte, NC area to serve as mentors for the clinic. Under the guidance of professional mountain bike guides, our veteran mentors will serve hands-on to ensure participants gain the knowledge, understanding and freedom in the mountains. No previous biking experience is required and we look forward to meeting participants where they are in their respective skill level. This event is less about riding bikes and more about coming together as a squad to support one another. By empowering veterans to serve individuals with disabilities in this capacity, we hope to provide a renewed sense of purpose to transitioning service members while instilling a commitment to wellness in the Charlotte community.
