And the winner is ...
The Youth Action sports camp has been organizing fantastic sports camps since 1984 for young people with (serious) physical disabilities aged 12 to 17 years. Sports is an outlet, gives confidence and let young people discover where their talents and abilities lie, and that despite all the restrictions. In addition, it is nice to meet buddies and to be able to forget the day to day routine. For parents- and carers, this week is important because the care is taken care of and they can refuel again.
Thursday, July 28, 2016 we visited the Youth Action sports camp! the foundation who received this year Lewis Sit & feel free!-Award. We managed to experience how wonderful this initiative is! Children with physical disabilities exercise here during the week of their lives and be able to be who they are!
Last Sunday, the volunteers were ready to welcome the 54 children in SO Lichtenbeek. The classrooms of the school have been converted into bedrooms, at the playground a large tent is set up for the food and the sports hall is used for ... how could it be otherwise ... sports. Daily care of different trainers super sports like football, hockey, swimming, judo ... you name it. Best of all sports together, a wheelchair against a carpet, it all does not matter. In addition, they also went a day quad biking and paintballing ... how cool is that!
We are very proud that this year we have been able to present the Sit and feel free! -Award to the Youth Action sports camp! A great initiative that makes a major contribution to the self-confidence, independence and fun of kids with disabilities!
