"Thanks so much for welcoming us into your camp. I learned so much in such little time. Not only that, the methods you taught me, I have already started to use. It makes it a lot easier to get him to play with me if I say, 'It is time for...' I never would have known that without you. I hope to see you again next year." This is a note from a youth camper six days after this year's camp. This opportunity is for youth 10 to 18 years of age who are connected to a loved one with a memory, cognitive or neurological challenge. Most of the camp week is spent with other campers on fun activities like team building, water sports, and nature study. A couple hours of each weekday concentrates on cognitive challenges and preparing outreach. This camp is held at Lutherdale near Elkhorn, WI. Scholarship donations are again needed and appreciated. See the Activities page for more information.
