Applications for this camp are now closed
Family Residential Camp
The illness of a child can often mean that spending time together as a family can be difficult. Our free residential family camps have been developed to provide families with an opportunity to enjoy quality time together whilst taking part in a fun programme of activities and challenges. From climbing and archery to arts, crafts and board games, our wide range of activities allow families to have a weekend of fun, whilst also enjoying those quieter magic moments together and simply taking a break as a family.
We invite applications from families with a child or young person aged 0-17 years who is diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
Our camps are 100% fun and 100% free, for everyone, all of the time.
Each of our camps, which take place in a physically safe and medically sound environment, offer a world of mischief, magic and new possibilities, enabling campers to discover their true potential through a programme of therapeutic recreation.
Our Health Challenge camps take place in a medically safe environment – our team of volunteers which includes doctors, paramedics and nurses mean that campers are suitably supported with medical assistance on hand.
“After being at the camp for a short while, you could see how positive the experience was, Henry realised – ‘I’m hanging out with children, who all have the same thing as me…!’” – Camper Parent
