#ICan Family Camp 2020

This an exciting opportunity for the whole family to join in with. Family Camp is open to families including a child with a limb difference…

#ICan #YouCan #WeCan young people‚Äôs camps have been part of a collaboration between LimbPower, Steps and the Limbless Association. All three charities saw the need to support young people and their families on their rehabilitation journey and we have been working together since 2017 to provide activities, including the #ICan Camps.

The second #ICan Family Camp will take place in the Brecon Beacons at the end of September 2020. Family Camp is open to families including a child with a limb difference. We have participants as young as 2 years old joining us, up to 16 years old. We have mums, dads and even a grandma joining in the fun.

Children and young people with limb loss and limb difference face many barriers in life and can struggle with key transitions such as starting a new school or leaving school, and moving into higher education or employment. The Limbless Association, LimbPower and Steps are able to deliver adventure/activity camps for children and young people with an amputation or limb difference to aid their physical, social and psychological well-being. There is a focus on building resilience, confidence, self-esteem and self-efficacy with the objective of reducing isolation through making friends and establishing their own relationships with the healthcare professionals who support them through their lifelong rehabilitation. 

September will see the #ICan Family Camp launching for the members of our community and of course mum, dad and siblings can come too. Get your wellies out and contact carly@limbpower.com for more details. This is one not to miss, for all the family, offering interactive workshops, support and information. A chance to speak with prosthetists, physiotherapists and other professionals, and of course lots of fun family time.
