Now in its second year, Camp Building Bridges is a camp for children ages 13 to 17 whose parents or grandparents have dementia. The camp provides education and support for these teens, as well as a break from their daily worries. This year's camp is July 19-25 at Camp Takatoka in Chouteau, Oklahoma.
The camp is the brainchild of Allen and Tracy Mobley (Tracy has dementia), who want to help children like their son Austin deal with the challenges of living with a family member with dementia. This year, the camp is a project of the Oklahoma/Arkansas chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.
Some needs-based scholarships are still available. For more information, contact Tracy and Allen at 417-933-2030 or [email protected]
