Recommended Centers Offering Excellent Programs for People of All Abilities
Northeast Passage works to create an environment where individuals with disabilities can recreate with the same freedom of choice and independence as their able-bodied peers. All individuals, with disabilities or able-bodied, should have the freedom of recreational choices and opportunities to connect with themselves, their families, friends, community and nature. We accomplish our mission through education, problem solving, and the creation of opportunities. We work in cooperation with other programs to create a strong network of accessible recreation, rather than a duplication of services.
