Adventure Therapy Foundation is a nonprofit that resolutely works to establish honest breakthroughs in the emotional recovery of cancer. By fostering vulnerable relationships, we lead survivors to courageously engage a purpose filled life.

We provide families with outdoor adventures. Families impacted by cancer with school aged children are invited to present Adventure Therapy with an outdoor activity that no one in your family has ever tried. We then plan the adventure and send you on your way. 

One out-of-your-comfort-zone activity can prove to everyone in your family, that when you work together, you can accomplish anything. Adventures can look like ice skating, camping, backpacking, hiking, skiing, surfing, rock climbing, snowshoeing, cycling, zip lining, kayaking, trapeze training, sailing, and on and on your options go. Dream it up and we will set it up.


What’s the dream activity for your family?

Let me start by saying you gave me a gift
that will truly last a lifetime.
From the time we arrived here it has been magical.
A break like this for me is only in dreams…
you provided that, and I’m eternally grateful.
It has been over a year since my dad was diagnosed.
It seems like every week we say “remember last year
& how uncertain everything seemed?”
Thanks to Adventure Therapy Foundation
we got to spend the day celebrating
my dad’s miraculous recovery.
And we all did it together – what a gift.
I spent the day fishing, riding horses,
and chasing waterfalls with my favorite people.
Thank you so much Adventure Therapy Foundation
for making this one of my best birthdays ever. . .
What an amazing, restorative trip.
Getting away together was truly a gift
as we work through the fears of the unknown
and find ways to celebrate life and family. 
Thank you so much for the amazing trip.
From the bottom of my heart this was incredible!!
A wonderful time to reconnect with my husband
after all we have been through, it was so special.
