Helium Arts, the national children’s arts and health charity, is hosting free summer art camps specially designed for children and young people (aged 8-15) living with a lifelong physical health condition.
All workshops are supported by professional artists, volunteers and on-site medical care. This year’s camps are taking place in Castlebar, Cork, Ennis, Galway, Limerick and Mallow, as well as online.
About the Camps
A lifelong physical health condition is one which can be treated and managed but usually not cured. Examples include diabetes, epilepsy, cystic fibrosis, allergies, heart conditions, chronic asthma, spina bifida, juvenile arthritis, rare or complex conditions and many more.
Helium’s camps are a great opportunity for children with physical health conditions to not only explore their creativity but also to make new friends, learn new life skills, grow in confidence and self-esteem, and have fun during the summer school holidays.
