Welcome to Camp in the Cloud – our new and innovative virtual camp.
It is a free, fun and interactive way of engaging children with serious illness through online activities.
Camp in the Cloud is our innovative, inclusive and engaging virtual programme, where campers and families can experience the magic of an Over The Wall camp from the comfort of their home. Campers are given exclusive access to our bespoke Camp in the Cloud platform, where they can engage with a mixture of online and real-life activities. There are opportunities for campers and families to interact in real-time with others who are attending the same Camp in the Cloud, through secure message boards and fun video calls. Campers are sent our ‘Seriously Fun Box’ in the post, containing every single resource they need to participate. Devices with pre loaded data can be sent to those who don’t have access to the internet.

What our families say
“We did not know what to expect from Camp in the Cloud, but we really enjoyed it all. My son’s face lit up when other children responded to his message on the board.
I think, for him, this was the most important part of the day. He knew that there are other children out there who have food allergies as we often reminded him of that, but until today he hadn’t personally seen or spoken to any. He can now see that he is not alone.”
– Camper parent
“It has been lovely to watch her confidence grow as she takes part in these sessions and the staff/volunteers have been fantastic.
An absolutely brilliant week filled with fun and I have enjoyed sharing the experience with her. After seeing how very well run Camp in the Cloud is I would feel confident and reassured in her attending a ‘real’ Over The Wall camp.”
– Camper Parent
