Summer Camps 2023Amazing, Fun, Magical

It was a busy Summer 2023 for our 8-12 year olds. Our busiest yet! 

We just loved meeting a total of 92 children at our Summer Camps that took place in Castlebar, Cork, Ennis, Galway, Limerick and Mallow.  We ran a total of 12 Summer Camps across 6 locations with 5 professional artists

Thank you to everyone who came along and to those who continue to come back to our camps – every one of you adds to the Helium magic – growing our communities of friends and support and adding to the fun we all have along the way!

Below is a look at what happened at the camps in pictures! Enjoy!


"Abbie had a fantastic time today at the camp and made a new friend with the same condition as her who only lives 10 minutes from us. We can now stay in touch. Thank you all! Keep up the great work. These services are an amazing opportunity. See you at the next camp"
( Alison and Abbie)


"The camp is great for giving confidence back to children and meeting others in similar circumstances so the child does not feel like they are the only ones which sometimes can happen"


"She enjoyed it and I knew that she was safe and happy there"


"Thank you...My son attended for the first time and had a wonderful experience. He was very nervous going in on the first day but by the third afternoon he skipped in. I genuinely have never seen him like this before. It has been a wonderfully positive experience. I hope he will have the opportunity to attend the next one."


"It’s an amazing programme, the artists and staff are amazing, the various different things they get to try is very different to school or other art classes and socially it teaches and encourages inclusion and diversity."
