October marked a significant development in the Edmund Rice Camps with a camp dedicated totally to children with special needs.
Br. Chris Glavey, together with ER Camp leaders from Kilkenny, Dublin and Omagh, came together in St. Patrick’s Centre in Kilkenny to host a camp for 14 children. The activities were specially designed to cater for the children’s needs and they had a most enjoyable time. While children with special needs have always been included on camps, this camp was a big step forward for the leaders in planning, undergoing special training and running a hugely successful camp.
The camp leaders are grateful to the Callan community who hosted a visit from them.
