A Fun and Creative February Mid Term Break

In February, we held our first camps of 2023 in 5 different locations – Limerick, Cork, Clare, Mayo and Galway. Here’s how it all went down!

We met over 40 children living with lifelong physical health conditions. There were a lot of new faces at the camps, which was fantastic to see. Our artists enjoyed connecting the new participants with some of our more regular Helium participants.  Friends were made and a big theme of the camps was building relationships and trust. Once again, making connections with other children who are experiencing similar things is one of the stand-out highlights of all of our workshops and camps.

Another highlight is, of course, learning new skills and making art! Below is a synopsis of just some of the creativity we witnessed at each of the camps.

A big thank you to all of our artists for bringing so much joy and creativity to our participants throughout the February camps! We can’t wait to do it all again at Easter!

If you or someone you know is living with a lifelong physical health condition and would like to take part please go to find a workshop to see what’s coming up and how to register!
