HOP in Cork University Hospital

The Barretstown Hospital Outreach Programme (HOP) brings the magic of Barretstown to the bedside!

Specifically designed to run in hospitals HOP allows children who cannot travel to Barretstown to experience the benefits of the Barretstown programme. Trained volunteers, who have all worked at camp before, set up in the hospital and run activities for the children applying the techniques of the Therapeutic Recreation model. HOP recently ran in Cork University Hospital with a pirate theme.

A BIG THANK YOU to all the volunteers and to the staff at the hospital who helped make the magic happen!
