Adventures Unlimited

White Calendar Icon

Adventures Unlimited is a program that offers Envision participants movement-based programming and events such as rock climbing, indoor skydiving, and goat yoga. Our programming includes biking on the north and south sides, as well as an agricultural stewardship partnership with the Chicago Park District at Big Marsh Park.

Every event is approached in an inclusive and holistic way. We begin with a site visit by Envision staff members, who evaluate the accessibility of the activity as well as the accessibility of the facility. During this visit we also have a conversation with the facility's staff in order to establish accurate expectations for everyone participating in the event. Every event includes a meal so that all participants - from Envision, from the site, from the community - can sit and talk about the experiences they've shared.

All of our events and programs are constructed to be accessible to as many participants as possible. We have single and tandem bikes to accommodate all cycling levels. Our chair yoga classes are designed so include everyone, no matter their mobility. For all events and programming staff are onsite to directly support each participant in his or her effort.

Adventures Unlimited Highlights:

  • In May 2018, 10 Envision program participants trained and cycled in Bike the Drive
  • In October 2018, a pair of Envision cyclists completed a 20 mile bicycle ride with a local cycling group. One of them had been riding for over a year; the other, only four months. Both, however, received the training and preparation they needed to make the ride a success.
  • In May 2019, we launched a biking and stewardship program at Big Marsh Park. As part of this program, we'll be riding bikes and maintaining their hiking trails and common areas.
