The fun begins! 500 guests and volunteers arrive today for the Order of Malta’s 35th International Summer Camp for Young Disabled
From air ballooning to disco dancing, their British hosts have planned a week of non-stop activities
Hampshire, 11 August 2018
It’s a week’s holiday for young disabled guests, a break from routine, an opportunity to meet old friends (many have been at the Order of Malta camps before), a chance to make new ones.
The helpers (members of the Order of Malta Volunteers – OMV) are the same age as their guests – a magic formula which creates special bonds.
Dressing for the occasion – the 2018 Summer Camp t-shirt
Mid week will see a visit from the Grand Master, Fra’ Giacomo Dalla Torre, who, together with his delegation, will greet the teams and their charges, and emphasise the camp’s message: Be courageous!
