Barretstown offers free, specially designed camps and programmes for children and their families living with a serious illness – supported behind the scenes by 24 hour on site medical and nursing care. All of the children and families come to Barretstown free of charge. Everything, including accommodation, food, medical assistance and travel costs are provided at no cost to the family.
The Barretstown programme is endorsed by leading medical professionals and has become internationally recognised as having a profound and lasting impact on the lives of children with serious illness. After participating, children go home with increased confidence, self-esteem and the skills they need to face the rest of their journey to recovery.
