Brain Camp, now in its 9th year, is a unique program that teaches adults how to increase their ‘cognitive reserve’ by creating new brain neurons which may provide a defense against neurodegenerative disease. Brain Camp Version V cites new statistics, conclusions and comments from 47 sources - trials, studies, medical journals, and a few fascinating best-selling books.
Two-hour classes are offered once a week for 4 weeks and include 30 minutes of different forms of exercise that include Tai Chi, Silver Sneakers, Stretch and Tone, and Zumba. Due to Covid-19, all classes are conducted via Zoom video conference.
