Being a volunteer member of the CRIS family is a unique experience; you will have fun, be challenged, contribute to your community in a meaningful way and help people with disabilities experience things they would not otherwise be able to. We provide training and support to volunteers interested with assisting on any of our day programs (kayaking, cycling, hiking, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing).
Community Day Programs provide day and evening excursions that run throughout the Okanagan region of beautiful British Columbia. Community Day Programs are specifically designed to enable all people regardless of disability to enjoy the benefits of outdoor recreation. These programs include cycling, hiking, and kayaking for the spring and summer. As for the winter programs consist of Sherpa hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. All of our programs vary in location and suit a variety of interests. Whether it is an informative hike that you seek or a huge water fight out on the water, Community Day Programs provide an experience for all to enjoy.
