Over The Wall - Residential Disabled children's holiday camps.

We provide residential activity camps during the Easter and summer holidays to children aged 8-17, who are affected by serious illnesses.

Thousands of children are affected every year by serious and life limiting illnesses. Many spend months, even years in and out of hospital undergoing treatments which can be frightening and painful. Many have endured isolation and lack of childhood experiences.

At camp we help children rebuild their confidence and self esteem by encouraging them to take part in a range of activities such as kayaking, climbing, horse riding, archery, arts & crafts, technology and media, as well as a weekly talent show and disco. Perhaps the most remarked on part of camp from all the children is the number of new friends they make.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

The children are supported during the week by Over The Wall staff, a dedicated team of volunteers who work with the children on a one to one basis and finally a pediatric specialist team of doctors and nurses who kindly volunteer their time (and join in all the activities with the children!) While the children are staying with us their parents are able to take a much needed break knowing the children are having a fantastic time and being cared for 24/7. We also ensure that siblings are not forgotten; during Easter and Autumn school holidays we run camps that give siblings a break from the stresses of home life with a sick brother or sister. The activity programme is exactly the same for both sets of children. Finally, we run an Outreach Programme in hospitals throughout the UK to give children confined to hospital wards a taste of camp life with the hope that once they are well enough they will join us for a full week of fun and magic.
