June 16 date of next Escape to the Lake

Posted: Apr 26 2018

Children and adults with physical disabilities will take to waterskiing once again June 16 at the 24th annual Escape to the Lake, organized by NDAD.

The adaptive water recreation event provides adults and children with physical disabilities the opportunity to water ski, take a pontoon ride and enjoy a recreational summer day on a North Dakota lake.

Nelson Lake, near Center in Oliver County, once again is the Escape site, with activities centered at the Nelson Lake Recreation Area.

Along with NDAD, the primary on-site support for this year's Escape again will come from Sporting Chance North Dakota, Texas Adaptive Aquatics and the Aberdeen (S.D.) Aqua Addicts, who also will provide a performance ski show for participants, their families, friends and caregivers.
