ABOUT OUTDOOR BUDDIES:
Outdoor Buddies mission is to provide opportunities, through a volunteer organization, for those who have been deprived of enjoying outdoor experiences. The focus is on those who are mobility-disabled, at-risk youth, and youth groups. Outdoor experiences include hunting, fishing, boating, camping, and education in the use of the outdoors for recreational activities.
The opportunities are available to all, with no cost (other than personal expenses) and no discrimination due to race, color, creed, religion, sex, or family status. We endorse the principle that wildlife and the environment are to be protected, preserved and managed for the benefit of all people.
Outdoor Buddies was co-founded in 1984 by Sid Sellers and Sam Andrews. Sam was Director of Therapeutic Recreation at Craig Hospital and Sid was a long-time volunteer Hunter Education Instructor for the Colorado Division of Wildlife and an avid outdoorsman.
The organization was created because of a need to find therapeutic recreational opportunities for rehabilitating patients who had suffered spinal cord injuries.
Through the years, Outdoor Buddies has expanded its programs to assist all mobility-disabled persons.
The organization has also instituted a Youth Program aimed at providing outdoor educational and recreational opportunities for at-risk youth and other youth groups.
Outdoor Buddies, Inc. was registered in 1988 as a Nonprofit Corporation under the laws of Colorado and has continually complied with all applicable requirements of the office of the Colorado Secretary of State. The Internal Revenue Service has recognized Outdoor Buddies as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Contributions to Outdoor Buddies are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
I look forward to seeing you there!
