Camping

Explore the campground in the GRIT Freedom Chair

GRIT Camping

Get outdoors, put the city streets far behind you, and enjoy the mountain air! Whether headed to a backyard trail, a state or national park, or some other wooded destination, you’re going to need the right tool for the job.

Riders around the country use the GRIT Freedom Chair for wheelchair hiking. Here are some of the reasons why:

  • The levers make the chair easier to push, so you get the leverage you need to conquer obstacles from rocks, to logs, to mounds of uneven terrain.

  • The rugged, three-wheeled frame keeps you stable and in control while rolling up or down the trail.

  • The chair disassembles and fits in the trunk of a small car, making it easier than ever before to get to the campground. Some riders have even packed the chair onto their rafts and canoes to venture deeper into the woods!

Riders who use the GRIT Freedom Chair to camp

Whether you’re in it for the star-gazing or s’mores-making, nothing beats a quite night at a campsite. Here are some riders who have taken their chairs to the trails with their tents (or campers) in tow!

When I lost the use of my legs, I thought I had also lost the wilderness in my life. With a concentrated effort of creativity and flexibility, along with a good dose of humility, I found my way back into camping again.    —  Jenny

Instead of just waiting for camp to get set, I was able to be an active participant in setting up the camp thanks to my Freedom Chair    —  Nerissa
