Welcome to Turning Point
Life Beyond the Sidewalk
Turning POINT is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization with 36 years experience providing FREE adapted outdoor recreational activities and adventures for those with physical challenges. Each month there are activities scheduled to help those with mobility impairments stay active!
Our next event is Spooky Camp, which is one of the favorites among our members, on November 7-8 . After setting up tents, fishing, kayaking, shooting bows and air rifles and cooking our dinner over an open fire, the witches and zombies come out. You must pass through the graveyard (if you dare!) before entering the haunted tents. We finish the evening with s'mores and ghost stories before heading to our tents. Sunday is spent doing activities and tearing down our campsites. There is no cost to attend the camp out and Turning POINT has all your camping equipment. Spooky Camp is in Ben Wheeler at a private wildlife preserve. Reservations are required by emailing POINT@TurningPointNation.org. P.S. We camp next to a cabin with an accessible bathroom.
Our monthly activities are taking the month of September off. Handcycling will again be held the 2nd Saturday of each month. Locations will change occassionally to ride various trails throughout the metroplex. It will start at 10am. Beginners and advanced riders are welcomed. Length of ride depends on your experience level. Boating and/or fishing from a pontoon boat on Lake Ray Hubbard is also taking a break at the repair shop. The pontoon goes out the 1st and 3rd weekend of the month, but you do need to make a reservation with kmumford@TurningPointNation.org
Maybe you or someone you know would like to get involved with us - we welcome members, volunteers, sponsors and donors.
