CAMP BIAG –October 18-21, 2018
emails, our FaceBook page and this website for announcements on when
2018 camp applications are going to be available – for campers,
caregivers and volunteers!
BIAG would like to thank all of our sponsors and donors who
have supported Camp BIAG 2017. We are extremely grateful to you!
Camp BIAG is a unique, overnight camp experience designed
specifically for adults (18+) with brain injury. Camp BIAG is the
most complete and cost-effective recreational and therapeutic
program in the Southeast focused on the special needs of the brain
injury community. Camp BIAG, in partner with Camp Twin Lakes, is run
by a highly-trained staff that can address the unique medical and
emotional needs of each camper. Camp sessions are called
life-changing by our campers. Many share this is the one place where
they feel, “I can just be me!”
What does that mean for brain injury survivors? Camp BIAG offers
adults who have survived a brain injury – both ABI and TBI - an
opportunity to have fun, to be with others who understand, and to
engage fun recreational activities. This experience supports the
healing process, helps reintroduce life skills, offers great
socialization and enhances self-esteem. Planned activities allow
survivors a time where they have fun like anyone else, while their
caregivers can find quiet moments of respite.
What does Camp BIAG offer for caregivers? Caring for survivors of
brain injury is never-ending. It is draining and many caregivers are
aching for a much-needed break. Camp BIAG allows caregivers an
opportunity to take a weekend off to renew and recharge themselves.
Some use this time while their loved ones are well cared for by
highly trained staff, to get out of town. Others will enroll in an
on-site Caregiver Camp offering support, socialization and
activities with others who understand the journey.
Camp BIAG is designed to renew the mind, body and spirit of all
involved. Our goal is to help those suffering from brain injury and
their caregivers to face future challenges with a new sense of
support, courage and strength.
