Great Smoky Mountains to Expand Adaptive Programming

Updated: Apr 22

Last year, in a landmark collaboration between Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP) and various partners, Catalyst Sports was a part of the groundbreaking initiative to bring accessible programming to the GSMNP for the very first time, marking a pivotal moment in the park's 84 year history.

We're excited to announce our continued partnership with GSMNP this summer, aiming to further expand their adaptive programming through the utilization of cutting-edge assistive technology. This year, we're proud to offer an array of SEVEN programs, ranging from adaptive kayaking to an unforgettable overnight camping excursion. Registration is required to ensure there are enough adaptive equipment and volunteers.

Here's a list of our upcoming events, click on the links to find out more information and register!

September 7th: Hike at Bradley Fork

These ranger-led tours promise an enriching experience for visitors of all abilities and their families, allowing them to immerse themselves in the natural and cultural treasures of this magnificent park. These transformative adventures would not be possible without the generous support of Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National ParkKnox County, and Kampgrounds of America, Inc..

Volunteer Opportunities:

For those residing in Knox County, the NPS will be conducting volunteer training sessions on Saturday, April 20, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sugarlands Visitor Center Training Room, near the Gatlinburg entrance to the park. To register for training, please reach out to Katherine Corrigan at

Additionally, Catalyst Sports will be providing our own dedicated volunteers for specific programs. Be sure to visit our website and explore the event pages for further details on how you can get involved.
