Our mission is to support northern Arizona’s outdoor adaptive sports programs and assist the Forest Highlands Foundation in helping to make the greater Flagstaff community a better place for all. We do this by engaging young adults through leadership opportunities, volunteerism, and philanthropy.


Access to green open spaces is essential to the health, wellbeing and development of every individual, regardless of their physical, mental, or economic situation. Each year millions of people ascend to the high elevations of northern Arizona’s forests for just this reason. In the summer months, we enjoy the outdoors – mild temperatures, natural springs and lakes, green pastures, and an abundance of trees. And in the winter, we ski!

 At Forest Highlands, the enjoyment of outdoor sports and activities is core to the community’s mission. We now, along with the Forest Highlands Foundation, wish to create a more inclusive and healthier community by making these recreational opportunities accessible to all.


Who We Are and What We Do

We are your sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and neighbors. Our board includes junior and senior high students from within the Forest Highlands community. We provide youth volunteers to participate on site during High Country Adaptive Sports program, as well as support to the Forest Highlands Community Foundation with the promotion and execution of foundation events and activities.

 Most notably, we host the annual Top Gun Shootout at the Canyon Driving range with all funds raised going in support of High Country Adaptive Sports.


Responsibilities and Time Commitment

Board membership is characterized by a three-month summer program (May – July) that consists of three primary activities as well as volunteer opportunities that may arise throughout the year. These include:

May – Membership Brunch and Orientation

June – Top Gun Shootout

July – Day at the Lake with High Country Adaptive Sports

 Members are encouraged to attend each of the three events. The Orientation Brunch is an educational event for members to better understand philanthropy, volunteerism, and the importance of adaptive sports to our special needs communities. Members plan and execute the Top Gun Shootout, while members’ parents are encouraged to sponsor a table and assist with promoting the event and attendance within the Forest Highlands Community. Finally, the Day at the Lake is an opportunity for Board members to have fun, socialize, and get hands-on experience with adaptive sports and specialized equipment.
