Virtual Camp TREK
August 15, 2021 – August 19, 2021

To be eligible, applicants must have a brain injury, be 18 years or older, and reside in New Jersey.
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.

We have confidence that we can remain connected in a virtual way. More details about these activities will be revealed over the next few weeks. We have so many awesome things planned and hope that you are as excited to attend Virtual TREK as we are.

Applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
For more information or questions please contact:
Laura Jacobs, MA at ljacobs@bianj.org or 732-745-0200.


2020 Camp TREK Recap

Camp TREK has turned 34 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 2020, we welcomed new campers that may not have been able to attend residential camp along with returning campers from years past.  

 Each camper received a box prior to the start of camp, with daily supplies and treats for that day’s activity.  Campers took joy in partaking in the game night, nature hikes, carnival, traditional annual talent show and had loads of fun singing along with the songs of the TREK band.  The best part was that in a time of social isolation, we came together virtually for support, connection and fun.

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!
