About the Young Adult Retreat

In 2016 the EFEPA hosted the inaugural Young Adult Retreat at Camp Green Lane. The weekend focused on addressing the unique needs of young adults living with epilepsy through socialization, introduction to wellness techniques such as yoga and dance movement therapy, exploration of future planning and time to talk directly with medical professionals.

This year, we will once again host a weekend where young adults like you will have time to chat with friends who understand the challenges of being a Millennial with epilepsy. Doctors and nurses will join us to answer some of those tough questions there just isn’t time for during office visits.

Of course, there will be plenty of time for fun and relaxation in the beautiful woodsy-setting of Camp Green Lane. This exciting weekend will leave you feeling refreshed and energized! The retreat is open to individuals 18-30 with a primary diagnosis of epilepsy. Due to our staffing capabilities, we ask that all participants be able to administer their medications and perform basic Activities of Daily Living independently, such as dressing and bathing. We will have 24-7 nursing care to address any emergencies.
