Allergy UK partners with Over the Wall for Camp in the Cloud
Allergy UK has renewed its partnership with Over the Wall to deliver an innovative virtual camp for families and children affected by allergy.
The Allergy UK Camp in the Cloud is a free one-day online event for families with children aged 8-17 who have been diagnosed with severe or complex allergies, or who require an auto-injector. It has been designed in partnership with national charity Over the Wall, which supports young people facing serious health challenges through camps held across the UK.
Taking place on 11 September 2021, the event will encourage the whole family to take part in engaging and entertaining online and real-life activities. All campers will receive a Seriously Fun box in the post containing resources to be used during the day, and there will be opportunities for participants and their families to interact in real-time with other campers through secure message boards and video calls.
The Allergy UK Camp in the Cloud is designed to promote inclusion and increase campers’ confidence and self-esteem. Participants will be encouraged to share their experiences and take part in activities to develop coping strategies for feelings of isolation and anxiety that can be associated with allergic disease.
