Easter  Camp  B.L.A.S.T.   2011
  "Building Life After Stroke Together" 

   Watch "What is a Stroke Camp"             Read Campfire Stories    

Every Easter for over 20 years this camp was hosted by the Stroke Recovery Association of British Columbia. It was held in Squamish B.C., (known for the Brackendale Eagle watch) located between Vancouver and Whistler (site of the 2010 Olympics).Stroke survivors had the opportunity to get away from daily routines and socialize with their peers. Spending this time together allowed stroke survivors to live and learn from each other. Having the ability to live through day to day routines with each other developed into a memorable learning experience.Therapy under the guise of fun, while participating in real life activities, results in greater achievement. The benefits are invaluable. Stroke survivors are encouraged by sharing and watching each other progress from year to year.There is life after stroke and stroke is for life. Recovery is an ongoing process.

Our Camp was discontinued in 2005. Prince George offered a Spring Retreat in 2008. TurtleTalk, a group of ex-campers formed in 2009. Stroke survivors networked, determined to make this life learning experience available for other stroke survivors. Major funding will be required in order to make it affordable for survivors and their caregivers who are often on fixed incomes. Any help will be appreciated. Please click on the links to learn more. Contact us for more information and/or suggestions.

 **Update:  There will an Easter Camp B.L.A.S.T.   2011
                            "Building Life After Stroke Together"

TurtleTalk is virtual space for stroke survivors, family and friends to gather, support, share and learn from one another. Here we can share thoughts and ideas which we hope to turn into reality. Retreats and events in safe comfortable environments are the stepping stones toward a meaningful "life after stroke".
