Vernon Adaptive 


Access Revolution promotes inclusive access to outdoor recreation for people of all abilities by providing adaptive equipment, opportunities, education and resources.

The VPC, and Access Revolution believe that everyone deserves the right to play outside and participate in community, alongside their family and friends.

Over the coming year we are focused on the expansion of the VPC compound and programs to accommodate the adaptive equipment required to empower people living with disabilities to access Okanagan Lake and enjoy water activities such as stand up paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking.


Exciting fundraising opportunities are made possible through our strategic partnership with Independent Living Vernon, a local charitable organization. Donors and paddling sponsors will receive a tax receipt for their generosity and shout-outs on social media.

Our Inclusive Program

The Vernon Adaptive Program provides exciting and inclusive paddling opportunities to our community and beyond. We utilize innovative adaptive equipment to get people of all abilities and ages out on the water.  Our selection of adaptive paddle boards allow people to experience the water from the comfort and safety of their own manual wheelchair or we have many other seating/standing modifications for those with limited balance.  Our beautiful double and single kayaks are dialed in with outriggers for stability and an assortment of backrests, paddle mounts and hand grips so that everyone can participate.

Vernon Adaptive: Mission

To promote equal access to the water by providing exciting inclusive paddling opportunities to our community and visitors so that everyone has the chance to enjoy meaningful time on the water with their friends & family. By removing physical, financial and social barriers, everyone benefits and no one is left behind.
