Outdoor Wellness Fellowship
Join our next group of learners and adventurers. Be part of a dynamic and supportive community dedicated to achieving independence and experiencing the Great Outdoors. This is an opportunity to expand your life vision, learn from neurologic experts, connect with peers, improve your physical mobility skills, engage in your community, and experience the outdoors in a new and meaningful way.
Designed specifically for adults with neurologic conditions, our Outdoor Wellness Fellowship program gives you the tools and inspiration to live a life of adventure!
Phase I: Learn & Discuss
Immerse yourself in a 12 week teaching and discussion course about critical topics like brain health, neuroplasticity, sleep, nutrition, stress management, pain, physical activity, strength, fitness and living well. Meets weekly online or in person.
Phase II: Experience
Join other fellowship students and put your knowledge to practice during a week of outdoor rehab-based adventures. Improve your confidence and fitness while enjoying the great outdoors.
Rehab Vacation hosted by rehabilitation therapists and located in Bend, Oregon. Dates vary each year.
Phase III: Lead & Teach
Before graduating, each student will complete a capstone project of their choosing, with guidance from our program instructors. This could be an educational presentation at your local support group, or planning an outdoor adventure for others to experience. Dream big!
And finally - Graduation!
Upon completion of our program, each fellowship student will receive a graduation certificate from the Outdoor Wellness Institute. You will join an exclusive group of alumni and have access to social connections to help you maintain the knowledge and skills developed during your fellowship year. You will also have the opportunity to become a fellowship mentor for future students.
