generic_datr_logoSouthwest Center for Independent Living (SCIL) proudly co-hosts the annual Day at the Range and Outdoor Adventure Fair (DATR) with the Missouri Department of Conservation and Sho-Me Chapter of the National Wildlife Turkey Federation and the Wheelin’ Sportsmen to provide recreational opportunities to persons with disabilities that they would not typically have.

The DATR committee mission for the event is to introduce people with disabilities to the many outdoor activities through education, hands-on opportunities, and assistive technology so that they may choose to participate at their own ability level. Opening the doors for people with disabilities would lead to fulfilling dreams and moving beyond boundaries placed on them. It is our hope that many will know that their dreams can come true – if they will dream and then act upon that dream.

SCIL invites all individuals with all disabilities of all ages and their family and friends to the annual event “Day at the Range and Outdoor Adventure Fair,” on the third Saturday in June from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Andy Dalton Shooting Range and Outdoor Education Center in Bois D’Arc, Missouri.

This annual June event is free of charge to all participants, family members, guests, and volunteers.  Attendees will be provided lunch and drinks.  Pre-registration required and can be accessed by calling 417-886-1188, downloading the form below, or by visiting the event website

The activities planned are fishing, target shooting with air pellet guns, shotguns, cross and compound bow, wildlife education classes, crafts, and demonstrations from other people with disabilities on possible outdoor activities.  All equipment is provided such as fishing poles, guns and ammunition, bows and arrows, adaptive fishing belts, strong arms, gun rests for wheelchairs, interpreters for the deaf, and aides for those who need one-on-one attention.
