Camp Hardgrove is celebrating many years as an overnight program for persons
with brain injury. Adults and caregivers are served in this terrific program. Camp Hardgrove is the most complete and cost-effective recreational program in the Southeast for the special needs of people affected by brain injury. Camp sessions are called "life-changing" by campers and re-introduce life skills and socialization to survivors of brain injury.
Camping programs are a key and historical part of BIAG's outreach and services to the brain injury community. Camp offers adults who have survived a brain injury - and their caregivers - an opportunity to have fun, to be with others who understand, and to engage in sports and recreational activities. This experience furthers the healing process and enhances self-esteem. This camp, tailored for special needs populations, is expensive
to offer and requires the support of the community to provide in-kind donations and volunteers. These donations, with funding from foundations and corporations - allow us to provide camp at very low cost and many who attend do so on full scholarships (about 80% of campers.) Donor generosity has enabled us to offer programs vital to the well-being of those suffering the life changing effects of a brain injury.
