Outdoor Explorations (OE) is an inclusive disability organization that inspires personal growth through outdoor adventures by serving individuals with all types of disabilities, including physical, cognitive, sensory, emotional and multiple disabilities, as well as those without disabilities. OE enables people to test their limits in a safe and supportive environment, learn new skills, engage in physical activity, build leadership skills, increase self-esteem and forge new friendships.

Kayak by moonlight off the coast of Maine, build accessible trails in a local state park, or learn how to rock climb in the greater Boston area-all in a fun, supportive, and inclusive environment! Participate in one of our many programs for people with and without disabilities, of all ages and backgrounds, and be a part of our mission for social change.

People with disabilities still face barriers in many aspects of their lives, and the outdoors remains inaccessible for many. Outdoor Explorations opens a world of adventure for everyone through kayaking, sailing, snowshoeing, and other outdoor activities. We help people with all types of disabilities experience the outdoor freedom that others take for granted. We use adaptive equipment, a cooperative attitude, and a lot of good humor to create enjoyable, empowering adventures. Our programs build the kind of shared success in the outdoors that transforms people with and without disabilities, where barriers are broken and new abilities emerge.

Outdoor Explorations has specific programs for the 18+ crowd. Enjoy backpacking, kayaking, ropes courses, whitewater rafting, sailing, or any of our other outdoor programs with other adults that share your interest in the outdoors.
