Spending time in nature provides a host of benefits and by simply getting a breath of fresh air and a little sunshine, it can shift our moods for the better. There can be significant barriers to outdoor camping for individuals with physical disabilities getting into the great outdoors, but Without Limits aims to remove those!






Short Description

Thanks to the ADA, there are some county, state and federal parks that offer accessible campsites that can accommodate individuals with disabilities. Camp Bull Frog is one of those venues and we are excited to have the opportunity to provide the Without Limits: Camping for All event here!

Without Limits: Camping for All is an introductory camping event that provides a rich and challenging outdoor adventure experience for individuals with primary physical disabilities, their friends and families.

To be eligible for participation in Adaptive Adventures programs, individuals must be able to follow directions and effectively communicate without assistance.

What Can I Expect?

This is a cost-free program thanks to the Forest Preserves of Cook County Conservation and Experiential Programming grant. We encourage families, friends and caregivers to attend as Adaptive Adventures will not be providing one on one aides or personal care services. We are excited for another year of adaptive climbing, cycling, fishing, and kayaking, as well as activities provided by the Forest Preserve District of Cook County staff.


How Should I Dress & Things to bring?

Come dressed in comfortable athletic attire (think breathable, moisture-wicking), closed toe shoes, and easily removable layers (weather dependent). Adaptive Adventures will provide all adaptive sporting equipment.  We aim to make this introductory camping experience as accommodating as possible for all campers. Lodging, camping equipment, food and activities will be provided for all. However, individuals are required to bring any additional supplies or equipment that may be necessary for the weekend.
