SCI Camp 2017: SOAR Sports and Outdoor Activities and Recreation April 25-28, 2017SCI Camp is offered to veterans living with Spinal Cord Injury/Dysfunction (SCI/D) that have recently been discharged (within the last 2 years) or are currently in rehab for their injury/dysfunction. Camp is sponsored every-other-year by the Southeastern Chapter, with additional support by other organizations and donations. This 3 day, 2 night adaptable camp was formed with the intent to bring our SCI veterans and their caregiver/spouse the opportunity to: 1. Reconnect with others they may have been in rehab with, 2. Experience sports, outdoor activities, crafts, and recreation and 3. Be re-evaluated in a non-stressful environment by the medical team, in order to determine whether additional rehabilitation is necessary or practical. Ultimately, camp allows the veterans to have fun, experience family and friends and activities to realize that there is a greater quality of life when living with their SCI/D. Many of this year’s activities/sports/games/crafts included: Boccia Ball, archery, zip line, fishing, corn hole, board games, bonfires, parades and dancing! Over 42 veterans and 15 caregivers participated in the specially coordinated experience. Caregivers were considered during camp and were provided with support groups and massages, along with crafts.
