Brain Camp, now in its 8th 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 IV introduces the results of more than two dozen recent clinical trials and studies in a format that’s user-friendly and fun.
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.
