TEAM Teen Retreat is a weekend camp for teens, 13 to 20, that have been patients on the Transitional/Rehabilitative Care Unit (TCU/RCU) at Cook Children's Medical Center. This camp is held at Camp John Marc in late September.
The word 'team' is meant as Teens Encouraging And Motivating. TEAM Teen Retreat was created to give teens with an acquired neurological injury, disease or disorder an opportunity to socialize with peers with similar experiences. Teens will have the opportunity to encourage and motivate each other throughout the weekend while learning new skills, trying new activities and gaining self-confidence and independence.
This Camp is led by professional staff from Cook Children's Medical Center.
A registered nurse attends camp to provide medical supervision 24 hours a day.
This camp is for teens ages 13 to 20, who are former patients of the Transitional/Rehabilitative Care Unit at Cook Children's Medical Center with an acquired neurological injury, disease or disorder. Teens must be developmentally and cognitively able to participate in the goals of TEAM Teen Retreat to be eligible to attend. Save the Dates/RSVPs are mailed to those that qualify. Campers are then accepted once the full application has been reviewed. Availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
