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.
