Mary Kay Pampers Stroke Survivors and Caregivers At Stroke Camp 2012!



Retreat & Refresh
Stroke Camp 2012

 

This is good summary of the camp @ the Carol Joy Holling Conference Center just north of Mahoney State Park, on the dry Platte River (it is part of 2-3 centers run by Nebraska Lutheran Outdoor Ministries (NLOM).

The freshman class from Union College took over most of the outlying buildings & activities. Despite spotty shower & humidity, Lori and I did make it out  in a paddle boat and I in a canoe.

 

 
A Camping Experience for Stroke Survivors &Their Caregivers

 

 

For dozens of stroke survivors from all over the state, a weekend away at camp is just what the doctor ordered.

It's called "Retreat and Refresh" stroke camp, and it gives survivors a chance to connect with each other as they recover.

At camp, they work with arts and crafts, music therapy, and even facials. Some say it brings a feeling of togetherness to the process. Ed Brogie is a stroke survivor, he says, "family becomes more important, your spiritual connection becomes more important. And in camp like this, you get to meet people that are in the same situation that you are so you don't feel like an island."

This years Camp went until Sunday afternoon, 8/19/2012.

Retreat and Refresh Stroke Camp provides an opportunity for stroke survivors, caregivers and family members to experience a camping weekend. Activities are designed specifically for campers offering opportunities for education, socialization, relaxation and support.
