Annual Events

There are a number of annual events in Saskatchewan for surivors of acquired brain injury and their families. These events offer the opportunity to get out, learn new things, meet other people, and have fun.

 

Camp Events 

The Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Youth Camp, Arlington Beach
 
 
The Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Youth Camp is an annual 4 day camp for Saskatchewan kids,  aged 8 to 18 years. Originally located at Christopher Lake north of Prince Albert, in 2012 the camp was relocated to Arlington Beach Camp on Last Mountain Lake.
 
The camp was founded 10 years ago by member agencies of the ABI Partnership Project because no traditional camp in Saskatchewan met the unique needs of children and adolescents with ABI. Campers meet other kids with ABI and parents have a few days of respite. Some of the campers and leaders have attended every year!
 
 

SBIA's Survivor and Family Camp

The Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association (SBIA) hosts an annual Survivor and Family Camp in the summer at Arlington Beach Camp, located on the northern shores of Last Mountain Lake. The camp weekend will feature various sessions for both ABI survivors and their family members such as musical entertainment, creative crafts, indoor and outdoor games, and karaoke. During each camp, SBIA also holds their annual General Meeting to discuss their mission of increasing awareness of ABI. Visit www.sbia.ca for more information.
