What is Stroke Camp Northwest all about?
Each year in late August, 40 stroke survivors with aphasia (a condition that results in speech and comprehension challenges) and their families spend one weekend hiking, fishing, crafting and more all the while enjoying the support of licensed speech, occupational and physical therapists as well as trained volunteers to better express themselves. For some stroke survivors with aphasia and their families, Stroke Camp Northwest is a place to reacquaint themselves with activities they enjoyed before their stroke, or to find ways to adapt activities so they can enjoy them again. Loved ones are encouraged to attend and are welcome to join professional counselors in discussing support techniques for their family members and themselves.

The dates for camp 2011 have been set — August 19th-21st!
