“Watching the children, and having fun with them, its just phenomenal. The camp makes a huge difference to them.“
“Over the Wall offers families the opportunity to discover the laughter they thought they ‘d lost and discover the independence they children never knew they had.”
The children we support typically have very low confidence & self-esteem. They tend to be isolated from their peers, lonely & set apart. Life-limiting illnesses & disabilities often preclude children from participating in mainstream life, due to the complexity of their medical needs. Seriously ill children experience severe disruption to their education, natural & social development. Physical evidence of their illnesses & disabilities can subject children to bullying & rejection by their peers.
Our camps are designed & proven to complement the ongoing treatment cycle of children with serious illnesses, to increase self-belief, enhance their ability to cope & enable them to achieve their true potential. Our camps are uniquely nurturing & supportive environments; campers achieve things they previously never thought possible. OTW camps are unique due to the level of medical care provided; a team of volunteer doctors &nurses attend every camp providing 'home from home' nursing care.
