About Over The Wall
We are a national charity that supports children and young people facing serious health challenges through transformational residential camps in communities across the UK.
What we do
Our free, therapeutic recreation camps help to develop the confidence, self-esteem, coping strategies and relationships of our campers.
We strive to make each camp a memorable, fun and empowering experience. All in a physically and medically safe environment.
More than three hundred campers, families, volunteers, staff, trustees and funders helped us shape our values – the principles we live by and stand for, they are: Inclusivity & Acceptance, Fun, Safety, Support & Friendship, Inspiration, Escape & Adventure.
Over The Wall was officially founded in 1999 by UK businessman, Joe Woods, view our history timeline to find out more.
Our vision is that all children and young people, living with the challenges of serious illness and disability, can access transformational therapeutic recreation camp programmes, free of charge.
