Mercy Medical Center, in conjunction with CNOS, and Siouxland Stroke Support Network, are very excited to be hosting a "Retreat and Refresh Stroke Camp" the weekend of September 14-16, 2018. This camp is a unique way to bring stroke survivors and their families together for a weekend of support and desperately needed education, fun and respite.
Camp will be held at Broom Tree Retreat Center, outside of Irene, SD. This location was carefully chosen for their hotel-style private rooms and relaxing camp atmosphere. The hotel-style private rooms are a must for stroke survivor privacy.
"Stroke Camp is a much needed weekend getaway of relaxation and fun for stroke survivors and their families," said Nicole Shea, Mercy Stroke Program Manager. "The mission of Retreat & Refresh Stroke Camp is to improve the quality of life for stroke survivors, caregivers, and their families. This is accomplished through weekend retreats, as well as community stroke education and awareness events for the public."
Crafts, games, educational sessions, resources, pampering, friendships, good food, hiking/walking, discussion groups, informal chat with experts, Wii, and entertainment will be offered.
To sign up for the camp, please contact Retreat and Refresh Stroke camp at (309) 688-5450. The cost of camp is $125/camper ($250 per couple). Financial assistance is available. This includes all meals, lodging, and activities for the weekend.
