Time for Us summer camp for teens

Time for Us Camp
June 16 - June 21, 2019
Bethel Horizons
4601 County Rd. ZZ, Dodgeville
Cost: $425

TIME FOR US camp takes place at BETHEL HORIZONS camp located in Dodgeville and adjoining Governor Dodge State Park. Bethel Horizons camp compliments the 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.
