The 35th International Camp has offered an unforgettable week of exciting opportunities and activities for the young guests, with projects designed to cover all disabilities. ‘It’s a fantastic experience,’ says Monica, a guest from Italy, ‘and my third camp. I love it’. Malcom, Maltese, is here for the eighth time: ‘It’s so much fun.’ Maltese team leader Daniel Camilleri reflects: ‘The volunteers give us a lot. But the guests give so much back! It is a combination of satisfaction and kindness.’

The week concludes with the assurance that the groups will meet again next year, in Germany, where the friendships made and strengthened here will renew again.
