This Year’s Post Polio Retreat has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic
“This retreat has been the most important thing that I have done for myself in all my life.”
Our history is important to us, and we’re glad to serve our young campers of the past, and their peers, through this unique program.
Bay Cliff’s Post-Polio Wellness Retreat focuses on improving the overall health & quality of life of polio survivors. Participants individualize the program by selecting a combination of sessions to meet their specific needs. Educational sessions, taught by local and national health care professionals, assist polio survivors in learning more about Post-Polio Syndrome and leading a healthier lifestyle. In addition, participants explore aquatic therapy, massage, aromatherapy, and other complementary and alternative medicines as they relate to post-polio wellness. There are opportunities to exercise and recreational activities to enjoy throughout the week. All activities will be adapted to each participant’s functional ability level. Overlooking Lake Superior in the beautiful north woods, Bay Cliff is known as “a place apart,” offering an ideal setting for relaxation and renewal.
