Date & Time
Sunday 5th April 2020 - Thursday 9th April 2020
Bryanston School, Blandford, Dorset, DT11 0PX
This is a 5 day residential camp held at Bryanston School in Dorset, managed and run by activity group Over The Wall.
Our Siblings camps have been developed for children and teenagers (aged 8-17) who have a brother or sister (of any age) who is currently receiving treatment or experiencing health challenges. Siblings can feel particularly isolated or side-lined and our transformative camps, that place them at the centre of the action, helps redress the balance – we provide a range of activities including swimming, climbing, woodwork, theatre, music, arts and crafts, archery and much more.

Applications are handled directly by Over The Wall via their website.
Please note: To qualify for a Bader Brave place, please ensure to write ‘Bader Brave’ in the ‘How did you hear about OTW?‘ field.
MESSAGE FROM OVER THE WALL CHILDREN’S CHARITY CONCERNING 2020 CAMPS
We have been closely monitoring the likely impact of COVID-19 on our service plans this year and have reluctantly come to the difficult decision to postpone all our Spring and Summer camps and some of our Autumn camps.
We have deferred a decision on our remaining Autumn camps until more information is available.
Our priority is always the safety and wellbeing of the seriously ill children and family members we serve and our assessment, supported by statements and analysis from the Department of Health and Social Care and others, concerning the likely trajectory of the spread and extent of COVID-19 on the UK population means we cannot reasonably rely on having sufficient clinical and adult volunteers available to enable us to provide a safe camp environment.
We are enormously disappointed that we’ve had to take this decision, but we are energetically exploring what other options we might put in place to engage with our campers and volunteers during this extremely challenging time.
We are anticipating running camps in 2021 and will be contacting those families and volunteers who have been offered places this year when making those plans.
The DBF shares Over The Wall’s regret at having to make this difficult decision but echoes the need to protect our Braves and their families. We apologise for any disappointment but hope to be able to offer other opportunities as soon as this challenging time has passed.
