We have just held our 24th weekend at Avon Tyrrell, in the New Forest and it was a great success! The weather was kind enough and judging by the comments from parents and the kids, everyone sure had a great time!

The weekend will run from Friday 7th – Sunday 9th July. For an application form please email info@ccaa.org.uk or call 07958 187600.

If you haven’t already seen them, the photos from this year’s weekend are now up on our gallery and also on our Facebook page.

Interested but want to know a little more?

For those of you interested in finding out more we can accept applications for children as young as babies to the age of 16 years. We have the ‘Penguin Club’ for the younger ones, where they can draw, paint, play games and activities, go on woodland walks, play, make things…so there is plenty for them to do. Meanwhile the older children will be part of a group with other children their age and will take part in activities such as kayaking, shelter building, zip wiring, high ropes, low ropes, canoeing, raft building but to name a few. We hold informative sessions with health professionals for the parents to help understand more about Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), and the children get involved in some of these sessions also. This gives them the opportunity to learn more about the disease they have and discuss methods about how to cope with it on a daily basis.

You can find out more about weekends by visiting our weekend pages on our website and take a look at the videos on the page as these give a great insight into the type of activities the kids get up to on the weekend.

When is the next weekend for 2016? 

Our next weekend coming up is on 9 – 11 September 2016 at the Hollowford Centre in the Peak District. You can apply for the weekend by emailing info@ ccaa.org.uk or calling 07958 187600
