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.
Camp TREK will be held virtually. Ultimately, the factors that made it necessary to shift to a virtual platform came down to camper and staff safety. Camp is everyone’s favorite week of the year, but the good news is that the virtual TREK will be provided for free and can accommodate more people.

2019 Camp TREK Recap
Camp TREK has turned 33 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 2019, six new campers joined the group. This year’s theme was “Friendship” with a wide range of activities including morning flagpole activities, swimming, tie-dye, a carnival, a game of life size battleship and the annual talent show. Campers were very excited to participate in an interactive game show; a visit from the Mr. Softy Ice Cream truck 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!
