Traumatic Brain Injury Camps
Texas Pilots have established and supported three camps for adult traumatic brain injury survivors in Texas and New Mexico and have created the TBI Camp Foundation http://txpilottbicamps.org/ to help support these camps.
At TBI camps families and caregivers enjoy a week of normalcy. No stares, no explaining, just fun playing baseball, riding horses, swimming, dancing or even riding a zip line. Pilot volunteers contribute their time as counselors at the camps and help at events. Pilots also provide scholarships for campers and caregivers as TBI Camp can cost up to $1,100 per person per week. Every dollar we raise helps us to provide that much-needed respite and means so very much to those with TBI.
This year marked the 25th anniversary of Mountain High Camp!!!
Pilots from all over Texas, Louisiana, and Illinois, and 67 campers from as far away as Washington State, including a counselor/ pastor from Ireland attended the 25th Anniversary of this amazing camp. Volunteers included care-givers, parents, Baylor doctors and nurses, and Baylor/Pate occupational/physical therapists. Volunteers were from Faith Mountain Fellowship Church, Nokona, TX missionaries, and even local Red River folks serve every year! In total, about 250 attended this remarkable camp to help celebrate its 25th year of operation!
Here are the faces of some of those wonderful people.
