Access Adventures is Melwood’s Travel Program designed for people with disabilities who are at least 18 years old.

For over 40 years, Access Adventures has provided planned vacations for adults with disabilities. The program places a focus on a small group, community-based vacations to offer memorable experiences to people with disabilities.


The Travel Program designed for individuals with disabilities who are at least 18 years old.

Access Adventures supports individuals in a 1:4 Travel Host (staff) to Traveler (participant) ratio. Accommodations provided for individuals needing additional assistance.


Some vacations are based out of the Melwood Recreation Center, a 108-acre property in Southern Maryland.

This facility provides accessible cabins and meeting spaces and programming, including horseback riding, challenge courses, and swimming, all designed to be adaptable for individuals with special needs. These vacations range from overnights to weeklong retreats; some themed to the season, holiday, or activities.

Access Adventures offers a variety of destination experiences, including cruises, beach resorts, and vacations to Atlantic City, Disney World, New York City, and more. Some trips specifically designed for travelers in certain age groups (young adults and seniors). Others have itineraries explicitly developed for travelers seeking a more active vacation or a more laid-back and relaxed experience.
