Out & About With . . . Wings Over the Rockies

Imagine!’s Out & About department was created in 1997 in response to the requests of community members with disabilities and family members who care for those with disabilities to have more options for community-based recreation services.

That “community-based” element is key - rather than scheduling activities in a segregated setting, you will find Out & About participants (both adults and children) utilizing recreation centers, bowling alleys, movie theaters, museums, and even amusement parks.

Of course, Out & About wouldn’t be able to provide those services without the support of the many, many community organizations that collaborate with Out & About to ensure that participants are able to receive positive instruction, within a therapeutic framework, to encourage growth, learning, community participation, socialization, health, safety, and the achievement of individual goals.

Today, I’d like to acknowledge Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum. Wings Over the Rockies is a regular destination point for both adult and school aged Out & About groups, and it is always a huge hit! The staff is always kind and accommodating as well.

Thank you, Wings Over the Rockies, for your commitment to your community and all of its members!
