16th Annual Wounded Warrior Snowfest

SAVE THE DATE!! Our 16th Annual Wounded Warrior Snowfest will be held on March 5 – 7, 2021 and will allow Warriors & their families to enjoy skiing or snowboarding at Jiminy Peak Mountain resort in Hancock, MA, and family activities during our Winter Carnival at Crooked Lake, NY. With the support of STRIDE’s adaptive programs, veterans will continue to learn how to overcome the challenges of injury and enjoy independence and freedom through recreational activities.

Since 2005, STRIDE Adaptive Sports has supported regional Wounded Warrior rehabilitative sport and mentorship programs in an effort to restore hope, independence, and freedom while improving self-esteem and confidence. Giving recently injured military personnel and veterans a chance to accomplish new skills and realize their potential, regardless of disability, is a small way we can thank them for all they have given to our country.

This year’s Welcome Ceremony will be held virtually – click here now to register!!!

Wounded Warrior Weekend

Enjoy a fun filled weekend in the great outdoors with fellow disabled veterans and their families at our SCORE camp in Chatham, NY. Some activities may include horseback riding, archery, yoga/meditation class, hiking, disc golf and a visit to Chatham Brewery for local entertainment, food and drinks.

Warrior Boot Camp

Our Warrior Boot Camp is a military-style tent-camping program we hold at our SCORE camp in Chatham, NY, in which our Wounded Warriors mentor STRIDE youth athletes one-on-one and teach them civic duty and military service. Youth don Army-issued uniforms and sleep in canvas tents at our “Yellow Ribbon” pavilion. Youth participants engage in activities such as flag-raising/lowering/folding; learning to salute; command etiquette; paintball shooting; archery; and many other related activities.
