Do You Know How Many Camps We Do Each Year?

United Stroke Alliance in partnership with Medtronic is launching a new resource for Stroke Support Groups called The Booster Box. Included in the box is everything a leader needs to conduct a support group meeting for up to 24 attendees.

To receive your free Booster Box please call our office at 
309-688-5450 or email to request yours. 

Subscriptions will be available for purchase and information will be inside your free box.

If you have been reading our blog posts here you probably know much of what we are all about. What you might not know is the extent of what we do. Listed below is this year's camps, their locations and the sponsors for the camp. You might also notice that we can have up to three camps on the same weekend, which are most likely in three different states. Each camp will have three or four experienced volunteers from the Peoria, Illinois who will travel to these locations to lead and manage the activities. As you can see, we may have as many as twelve volunteers staffing camps on any given weekend. We have been at this since 2004, starting out with one local camp and blossoming to the thirty, all over the country, you see listed here. It is, and has been, an amazing journey. We enjoy it, and we get to see the difference our camps make in a survivor's and caregiver's life. Check this list out and see if your city has one. If not, ask the Stroke Coordinator at your Hospital Stroke Center or the leader of your local Stroke Group to contact us...or you can even call us yourself - (309)688-5450 or email us at

Do you want to see what goes on at our camps? Next week I will post some photos to give you an idea.
