We have said goodbye to summer 2021, but here are some of the things we did. Check back in the spring to see our plans for summer 2022.

Bluebird Golf

Bluebirds Special Olympics Golf Team came back for its third year. Moving to Monday evenings, the Bluebirds played July-September, at Mount Snow Golf Course in Dover, VT. The team attended the Special Olympics State Games in the fall and came home with a lot of hardware!

Family Hike

Designed to be a social experince for the whole family, hikes will be between 2 and 3 miles, of an easy to low intermediate level. Hikes will be at various locations within 45 minutes of Mount Snow and the Dover area.

Bluebird Hiking Club: From Couch to Summit

A goal-driven, social fitness group designed for preteens to young adults. We met once a week on Tuesdays, for 10 weeks. Each week the group built skills and stamina, working towards a bigger hike at the end of the series. Each week included healthy habits to help us work toward our goal.  The final hike was an eight-hour eleven mile hike to the Stratton Mountain Fire Tower then to  Stratton Pond and back to our starting point.
