Time for Us summer camp

Time for Us summer camp for teensTIME FOR US is moving to BETHEL HORIZONS camp located in Dodgeville and adjoining Governor Dodge State Park. Bethel Horizons camp compliments our nature-based concept and adds structure and support to the fun five day camp experience.

TIME FOR US is a great camping opportunity for teens from 10 to 18 years of age who has a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or similar Memory/cognitive challenges. While most of each day is spent on fun camp activities - ropes challenge, tower climbing, canoeing, water sports, field sports. - a portion of the time focuses on an understanding of Alzheimer’s and memory challenges.

Campers will gain knowledge, coping skills, peer support and relationships that may assist them for years to come. The innovative curriculum allows campers to experience nature up close, eat healthy meals and learn about toxins and the connection between healthy food and their health.

Adults are encouraged to participate in a side-by-side camp. The adult version is meant for care partners, relatives, persons who work with seniors and people wanting to communicate better and understand more about cognitive health.

The camp is sponsored by the Alzheimer’s & Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin, forMemory, a network of persons affected by early memory challenges, and Bethel Horizons.
