A Camping Experience for Stroke Survivors & Their Caregivers
The Retreat & Refresh Stroke Camp program was first developed in 2004 by Marylee & John Nunley (Executive Directors) following John’s stroke in
2001. They realized a dire need for a program that could help stroke survivors and their care providers in many ways cope with the many challenges
of stroke. The mission of this program – is to improve the quality of life for stroke survivors, caregivers, and families through relaxing weekend
retreats. Such activities include, group discussion, speakers, music, games and massage, dance, swimming, fishing and craft activities to stimulate
the body, mind and spirit!
