National Ability Center

Posted by Lisa-Marie on March 4, 2011

During the  Snowmama Summit in Park City earlier this season, Snowmamas Barb, Jen and Lisa-Marie dropped by the National Ability Center at the 26-acre private Bronfman Family Recreational Center and Ranch.  

Jan Drake, the Equestrian Program Resource Manager,  told us about the National Ability Center’s extensive program offerings for individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities.  Trained instructors and volunteers utilize adaptive equipment and specialized techniques to allow individuals of all abilities and ages to discover their own passions--winter and summer.. There are programs for Wounded Warriors and camps for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Whenever possible, families are invited to join the fun.

She showed us the program services building, the Lodge which houses 24 double-occupancy rooms, a kitchen/cafeteria and public sitting spaces, the indoor and outdoor riding arenas, stables, indoor climbing wall and universal challenge course.

The National Ability Center, founded in 1985, is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization.  All activities are offered at an affordable rate and scholarships are available which ensures that no one is denied participation due to an inability to pay.
