CAMP TREK is the Alliance’s week-long residential camp program. It provides a valuable experience for individuals with brain injury, offering new challenges and opportunities. The week also affords a week of respite for caregivers, who often give 24-hour care the remainder of the year.
TREK is designed to serve adults, age 18 and older, with a primary diagnosis of brain injury.

2016 Camp TREK Recap
This year marked a 30-year anniversary for the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey’s Camp TREK. Through its three decades of service, TREK has provided a unique opportunity for independence, lifelong friendships, socialization and recreational activities in a safe, supportive environment.
This year’s TREK theme was “Olympics,” with a wide range of activities including: morning flag pole activities, swimming, art, poetry, baseball, soccer, yoga, ballet and a talent show. According to one camper, “This was the best year ever!” Many of our clients return year after year for the unforgettable experience. Highlights include:

FUNDING: The individuals who participate in this program have developed lasting relationships that help add meaning to their lives. This program is extremely important to the people it serves. The BIANJ is very proud that no one has ever been turned away due to their inability to pay. We actively seek support from the community, sponsorships, in-kind donations and volunteers to help reduce the costs paid by the campers and their families, many of whom are already facing financial strain due to medical bills. Donor generosity enables us to offer this unique program. Your contribution is needed to ensure that every camper has a TREK experience to remember!
