The Retreat and Refresh Stroke Camp is happening July 1st through the 3rd at Purdue University. The event is made to be an opportunity for those impacted to see they are not alone.

During the weekend the campers do team building activities, drum circles and games. Saturday's events included relaxation and spa sessions for campers and volunteers.

Occupational therapist Wendy Pullen said there is a lot of opportunity for support at camp.

"It's a huge life-changing event," Pullen said. "Their everyday life has changed and what we know with working with stroke survivors and caregivers is that they need a lot of support as they go through this journey."
