We have served over 100,000 campers since 1994

Hospitals treat the illness, Barretstown treats the child

Higher rates of cancer diagnosis and improved survival rates are leading to an increase in demand for our services, as more and more children and families face the long road through treatment.

Barretstown helps children and their families deal with the emotional and physiological scares often left after months and years of treatment.

The Barretstown programme is endorsed by leading medical professionals and has become internationally recognised as having a profound and lasting impact on the lives of children with serious illness.

After participating, children go home with increased confidence, self-esteem and the skills they need to face the rest of their journey to recovery.
