What is Base Camp?  

Base Camp is a 1-day event dedicated to learning, networking, training, and collaborating -- all in the pursuit of reaching new heights as professionals in the healthy aging movement.  Make the trek to Stevens Point where you'll learn from experts, sharpen fundamental skills, and aim your sights on inspiring new ideas.


Who's going to Base Camp?  Got a professional — or personal — stake in healthy aging?  Base Camp is for you!  The event is specifically designed for professionals from public health agencies, aging offices, ADRCs, senior centers, independent living centers, and health care systems — along with academic researchers, community partners and health promotion coordinators, leaders, and volunteers.  Come get new ideas and fresh perspectives to help you improve the health and wellness of your community.  And — most importantly — connect with friends and colleagues who share your vision for healthier aging in Wisconsin.
