Information for Campers
What awaits you at Camp Cavell
Stroke survivors, family members and friends are welcome to participate in and enjoy a "stroke retreat” – a care-free mini-vacation that meets your needs in a structured camp environment.
You’ll appreciate the activities and respite during this fun-filled weekend. Henry Ford volunteers provide assistance with recreational activities and activities of daily living, so that caregivers can get a break, too. Enjoy the handicapped-accessible, relaxing camp setting and camp activities with therapeutic benefits. The program includes two nights lodging in a cabin setting, and meals from Friday dinner to Sunday brunch.
All ages are eligible to attend.
Stroke survivors must attend with at least one caregiver, friend or family member, unless they live independently, without difficulties in caring for themselves.
The camp will be held at Camp Cavell in Lexington, Michigan.
Don't wait until the last minute to register for camp, as the available spots fill up quickly.
