The Alberta Aphasia Camp is holding their 6th annual camp on September 13 – 15, 2019. The camp is targeted at adults who are living with aphasia. The camp focuses on recreation and relaxation in a supported communication environment. Campers choose from activities, which are recreational (e.g., archery, hike, canoe, kayak, low ropes, orienteering, frisbee golf, board games, etc), therapeutic (e.g., conversation groups, stretching, stress management, therapy apps, etc) and self-care (e.g., manicures/pedicures, massage, meditation, yoga, etc).
The camp is held at Gull Lake Centre, which is conveniently located halfway between Edmonton and Calgary.
