Mad Moves Retreat

What is it?

Mad Moves is a program which operates year round consisting of classes and community activities in various locations in the Washington County area. Mad Moves is hosted by Ability Training Services.  

Once a year a Mad  Moves Retreat is hosted to review the learning from the year and show how to use it in daily life. We will be focused on exploring new ways to stay healthy: physically, emotionally, and nutritionally. Healthy recipes will be cooked, providers will act out skits, and activities and workout sessions will be sprinkled in each day as well. 

You must submit an Overnight Consent form to your Pod Lead and payment in order to be registered.

We stay in a very large beach home on the Oregon Coast for three days and two nights. Participants  cook and eat  meals together, learn about keeping their bodies strong and healthy together, and best of all hang out at the beach together!  Set times for learning are woven in to each day  as well as lots of time for enjoying  the beach, going to shops, and relaxing in our fantastic beach house. ATS will facilitate and host the Mad Moves Retreat by providing experienced helpers, transportation services, meals, communication supports and networking opportunities so that people of all abilities can learn to be healthy. And of course, everyone loves the bonfire and the coastal sunsets.   

All retreats are run with the help of ATS providers who are CPR/First Aid certified and trained in Person Centered Thinking and Positive Behavior Supports.   

Mad Moves Retreats have been  favorites since 2012! Come join the fun!! Beds are limited so RSVP right away using the PayPal link and Overnight Consent form!
