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
“Camp in the Cloud gave my children so much to do and things to think about and kept them occupied. It also cheered them up. It gave them time to chat with other children they met online, and with Over The Wall staff. It was wonderful for them to speak to the other campers, the chat time meant they could have a carry on, a joke and a laugh, which they really needed.”
Shona – Camper parent.
“During Camp in the Cloud, Ariel was on such a high and was really animated and buzzing all the time. The activities were inspired, and so engaging. It just felt like an immense amount of thought was put into Camp in the Cloud, and consideration of the kids was right at the forefront. There was such variety and interest that was channelled with limited resources -and potentially limited space- yet it completely worked. Over The Wall couldn’t have provided a better alternative to normal camp.”
Sarah – Camper parent
