Over the Wall family camps help children and teenagers living with Crohn's or Colitis to rediscover a new world of possibilities.

Applications for 2019 Family Camps have now closed.

It’s simple and rewarding to get involved with our Over the Wall family camps.

The stigma surrounding Crohn’s and Colitis can make people feel isolated and alone – at a time when they most need help and support. Together we can give each other comfort and confidence, share experiences, and make our voices heard and understood.

We understand what you’re going through so have partnered with Over the Wall to create this weekend of activities for families with Crohn’s, Colitis or any other form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Camp is a magical place and can be transformational for the whole family. Having space to talk to other families with similar experiences, seeing your children grow and take on challenges they never thought they could, make new friends who can understand, and spending time together in a supported environment can give the whole family a new perspective. The chance to be together, be silly, have fun and enjoy laughter is sometimes the best kind of medicine there is.
