STRIDE To Host Military Style Event For Youth



STIDE Adaptive Sports is pleased to announce their 2018 Wounded Warrior Bootcamp at the SCORE center from Thursday, August 23 – Sunday, August 26.

The acronym SCORE was created to provide a STRIDE Center for Outdoor Recreation and Education to both special needs youth and military veterans alike. The SCORE Center is the host of the annual Wounded Warrior Bootcamp and serves as a “barracks” style environment where youth experience an unforgettable weekend with hometown heroes as they sleep on cots in canvas tents, wear military style uniforms, and take orders from the veterans at a campsite names “Yellow Ribbon”” pavilion.

“If there is one thing that military personnel are good at, it is leading from the front and working as a team to serve,” said Development Director Patrick Hayslett. “We are excited to serve our community and our youth as well as these amazing veterans in a unique and creative way that will benefit everyone.”

Bootcamp will begin Thursday afternoon where our veterans will get to know one another while preparing for the youth to arrive on Friday. Every veteran will mentor a STRIDE youth athlete with a disability for a weekend of learning together.

The educational theme for the weekend will be military etiquette, culture, and habits. Activities will include flag raising and lowering as well as flag folding. Additionally, veterans will train the children on how to salute, offer them samples of MRE’s, teach different wilderness survival tactics, shoot paintball guns, and archery. Saturday, the entire group will head to Jiminy Peak Aerial Adventure Park to foster leadership and teamwork.
