Camp Scheduling and More


by Chuck Jones

I have included this year's camp schedule, dates and locations, for those of you not receiving our newsletter. If you live in the U.S. and would like to be on our mailing list, call the office at 1-866-688-5450 or send us an email at info@strokecamp.org and we will include you in future mailings. Unfortunately, we are not able to send mailings outside of the U.S. at this time. 

However, for everyone, the newsletter is available online from our website (www.strokecamp.org). If you go there and click at the left of the screen on "Media/News" you will see a link to "Newsletter". After clicking on that you will see, in the center of your screen, a list of the newsletters that have been published so far for the year. Or you can just follow this link:
 www.strokecamp.org/?media&newsletter  

A link to the news letters is also in the list of links at the left of this blog's screen. 

The newsletter is published every two months. The June-July issue should be out by now but we can still get one to you if you want one. The newsletter also contains camp dates as well as dates of other non-camping events going on throughout the year, along with a message from our Executive Director, Marylee Nunley, plus other stroke and stroke camp related information.

The camp schedule is always available on our website also at:
www.strokecamp.org  

If you go there click on "Camp Dates/Registration" at the left of the screen. Or you can just follow this link: www.strokecamp.org/?camplist&camplist

The above website also includes maps to the camp location and at the bottom of each camp date, below the map, are clickable boxes to that camp's registration forms for both survivor/caregiver and volunteers. You may register online from the link or print out the forms and mail them in.

I have included even the past camp dates below because I thought you might be interested in seeing all the areas where we have been and will be active this year. You will get an appreciation of how well we are reaching out across the entire country. Next year, we will be at many of these same camps again and even some we have not. 

It is difficult to say where we will be any given year because campsites need to be reserved as early as possible, even months in advance, to ensure their availability and that's hard to do because we have to be sure there is camper and volunteer interest in that area and that we have the funds to make the deposit, let alone pay for the whole weekend. Deposits are usually in the hundreds and even thousands of dollars and non-refundable.
