Mission Statement

The mission of Glamping with a cause is to provide short term respite and enriching experiences to those who are brain injured along with their integral caregivers and family members. Studies have shown spending time in nature can have a profound therapeutic effect on brain injury recovery. Our goal is to make this experience accessible to those who need it the most. Join us in making a difference.

Description

We a group of therapists, Physical and Occupational that have worked with Brain injury patients for many years. We have had family's ask us where they can take their brain injured loved ones for day adventures or longer. These clients need a safe space that they can reset and enjoy each others company without the sensory overload of crowd noises. Our short term goal is to offer adventures close to their homes and our long term objective is to build a retreat in North Georgia.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) has research to show through EEG's that exposure to nature indicates better attention, higher functional connectivity, and improved sensory processing which corresponds to better focus and cognitive flexibility. Spending time in nature also helps with mental health issues such as anxiety and mild to moderate depression. It reduces cortisol, a hormone associated with stress, which can help with sleep, positive social interactions, and boost creativity. Improved brain recovery is our goal for every client that is dealing with a brain injury.
