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

Applications for the Over the Wall 2020 Camp are open.

29-31 August 2020, Whitemoor Lakes Staffordshire

The stigma surrounding Crohn’s and Colitis can make people feel isolated and alone – at a time when they most need help and support. 

To combat this Over the Wall have created this weekend of activities for families with Crohn’s, Colitis or any other form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease to help families see beyond the conditions and meet others going through similar experiences.


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.

This camp is soley run by Over the Wall and not Crohn's & Colitis UK but we would encourage you and your family to attend.
