2018 Camp TREK Recap
2018 brought another successful year of Camp TREK. Camp TREK has turned 32 this year. 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.
In 2018, eight new campers joined the group. This year’s theme was “Hollywood,” with a wide range of activities including morning flagpole activities, swimming, tie-dye, soccer, annual talent show, and an Oscar’s style award ceremony. Campers were very excited to paint a mural, now hanging in the Brain Injury Alliance of New Jersey’s main office. Campers loved interacting with a magician, and had loads of fun dancing along with the songs of the TREK band.
The campers, staff and volunteers would like to extend a thank you to the Musicant Family Brain Trust and Meters for Mike for making the magic of Camp TREK possible.

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!
