Over The Wall Health Challenge and Siblings Camp in Cloud

Our camps are 100% fun and 100% free, for everyone, all of the time.
At Over The Wall, our camps are designed specifically for children with health challenges and their families. Allowing them to meet new friends, accomplish new challenges and above all, have fun.

For children living with serious health challenges, life is often impacted by missed opportunities to participate in the everyday activities enjoyed by their friends and peers. This can result in isolation, poor self-esteem and low confidence – all of which can become a barrier to future growth and development.

We aim for every camper to be empowered with a new sense of ambition, self-confidence and a better understanding of their abilities.

Camp has also helped give him the confidence to talk to his friends about his health challenge. Having these activities and learning new things has allowed Evan to say – ‘I learnt to do this at Camp in the Cloud-which is something I am able to do because of my illness.’” – Camper Parent

 

Siblings

Coping with an illness in the family can often lead to siblings having to adopt a caregiving role and therefore, many miss out on critical areas of childhood development, such as socialising and developing relationships with other children. Siblings also often feel particularly isolated or side-lined. Our transformative camps place them at the centre of the action, to help redress the balance.

Camp in the Cloud felt amazing when it came back around again, just like camp. Getting those packages in the post, and waiting for the day you can open them, and see everyone, and do all the activities – it’s just the best.” – Camper Sibling

 

Who can come to camp?

Your free virtual Camp in the Cloud has been developed for children aged 6 to 17 years, living in the UK, who are currently receiving treatment or experiencing health challenges. This Camp in the Cloud has also been developed for siblings of children with health challenges, allowing them to meet new friends, accomplish new challenges and above all, have fun.
