“A place where kids can kick back, relax and raise a little hell” – founder and Hollywood actor, Paul Newman
Over The Wall is a unique children’s charity that creates friendships and changes lives. We provide free activity camps for children living with serious illness, helping them to discover a world of mischief, magic and new possibilities. Our positive approach and carefully chosen activities build their confidence and self-esteem and help them to develop coping strategies so that they can look to their future with greater hope. We strive to make each camp experience memorable, fun and empowering – providing a medically safe environment where our campers can try things for the very first time!
Our first class medical teams cater for over 130 health conditions and we also run dedicated partnership camps with Diabetes UK, Allergy UK, Anthony Nolan, Children’s Heart Surgery Foundation and others to help their young members. All our activities are rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and they describe our camp environment as ‘a place where children thrive, not just survive’.
Over The Wall is the only UK charity that provides these camp experiences and our vision is that all children living with serious illness can access our camps.
