STARS (Adaptive Learning)


STARS serves youth and adults with autism, cognitive and physical disabilities, Wounded Warriors and their families. Staff and volunteers provide instruction to help each individual reach their highest potential. We also offer programs that are inclusive to encourage family and friends to recreate together. Our group programs and camps help to increase opportunities for social interaction with other guests that face similar challenges in life. These camps and programs help to heal not only the guest but families as well, as they find activities where they can participate as a family.

STARS serves private clients as well as school groups, and specific groups/associations that serve people with disabilities such as Horizons Specialized Services, regional VA hospitals, and Sunshine Kids. We serve clients from all over the United States and from other countries who want to come to Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

Steamboat's Inclusion Program allows special needs children, ages first grade to age 15, to join regular group lessons with a specially trained instructor. We then work with the child's parent or guardian to determine whether the child is ready to participate in a group lesson format, or needs to remain with our private program as described above. Must call for reservations in a private lesson first.
