The Alberta Aphasia Camp is holding their 5th annual camp on September 14 - 16, 2018. The camp is targeted at adults who are living with aphasia. The camp focuses on both recreation and relaxation in a supported communication environment. Campers choose from activities, which are recreational (archery, hike, canoe, kayak, low ropes, orienteering, frisbee golf, etc), therapeutic (conversation groups, stretching, therapy apps, etc) and self-care (meditation, yoga, stress management, etc).
The camp is held at Gull Lake Centre, which is centrally located halfway between Edmonton and Calgary.
