About Us

Getting Started with Splore

Mission

Our mission is to change lives by challenging and expanding one’s notion of ability through meaningful outdoor adventure. In order to get the most out of life, one must have the confidence to try new things, and have a sense of the possibilities life holds for them. We do this by empowering and instilling greater confidence in our participants through canoeing, rock climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, and rafting adventures.  Splore Outdoor Adventure trips leave participants with an expanded sense of what they can accomplish both individually and as a family.

Experience

Since the first river trip in 1977, Splore has been one of the pioneers in inclusive outdoor adventure. Many of our participants and groups have been rafting with us since the 1980s and 1990s. In 2014, Splore gained accreditation as an Adventure Program through the Association of Experiential Education. This accreditation recognizes the best practices that Splore follows in regards to guide training, risk management, and program development. In 2017, Splore joined with the National Ability Center meaning you can sign up for a wide variety of adaptive adventure programs as well as adaptive outdoor sports, recreation and education programs all in one place!

Locations

Splore trips take place in the greater Salt Lake City area as well as in the Moab and Canyonlands area. We are fortunate to have permits in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forests as well as on BLM-managed waterways in southern Utah.  While most of our trips are in the great outdoors, our indoor climbing programs take place at Momentum Climbing Gyms’ Sandy and Millcreek locations.

Groups

Imagine an experience that is custom-tailored to your organization, group or individual goals. An experience in which each individual in your group is challenged to stretch their abilities and aided in developing the skills needed to overcome a variety of challenges encountered in every day life.

We are committed to creating the optimal custom or group experience for your ability-specific organization, school group, corporate retreat or family event. And, we can adapt to ensure a range of abilities are included in all activities. Click here to book a group.
