Our range of camps are offered to all family members living with a serious illness to include Family Camps and Brothers and Sisters Camp. Our summer camps are tailormade to different age groups including Summer Children’s Camp (7-14) and Summer Teen Camp (13-17). Our Bereavement Camp takes place over two weekends in Spring and Autumn and our Haemophilia Camp runs at the end of October.
What happens at Barretstown?
At Barretstown we will look after the physical and emotional well-being of an ill child by creating a carefree and safe, medically supported environment where they can make new friends, share experiences – and continue their treatment if they need to.
Our camps and programmes have a profound effect and lasting impact on our campers and their families. After participating, children go home with increased confidence, self-esteem and more importantly the reassurance that happiness is not just for healthy children.
