Hospitality Camp - Dynamo Camp
UniCredit Foundation supported the "Hospitality Camp" project aimed at providing hospitality in its recreational camp located in Piteglio activities for
children and adolescents 6-17 years old with serious and chronic illnesses.
This collaboration allowed Dynamo Camp to offer hospitality to children coming from countries in the UniCredit perimeter (expanding is territorial
scope) with disabling pathologies.
UniCredit Foundation's contribution was used to cover part of the costs related to children hospitality during the 2019 international sessions, lasting one week.
On 17-25 August last year, 32 children from Serbia and Bosnia were hosted at the San Marcello Piteglio (Pistoia) Camp. During this session, Dynamo Camp
hosted 99 kids from Italy and other European countries.
During these weekly camps, young participants had the opportunity to carry out in and out door Recreational Therapy activities such as archery, swimming, climbing, therapy activities with farm animals, dog mobility and activities on horseback, as well as to participate in other Dynamo special projects. Thanks to their participation in these activities, children and young people involved can live moments of socialisation, leisure, joy and relief from the reality of hospital. Also special programmes dedicated to families with sick children and to healthy brothers and sisters are provided.
Dynamo Camp Onlus
Dynamo Camp Onlus has been active since 2007. It is the first Recreational Therapy Camp in Italy, in San Marcello Piteglio, designed to host children and young people aged 6 to 17 years with severe and chronic illness for holiday and leisure, during their therapy or in the post hospitalisation period.
Dynamo Camp also offers programmes specifically conceived for the whole family and for healthy brothers and sisters, in the awareness that the diagnosis of a disease does not affect only the sick child but the whole family. In 13 years of activity, Dynamo Camp has hosted 8,799 children in dedicated programmes and 8,164 children, teenagers and parents in family programmes for free.
The so-called Dynamo Programmes have reached 25,340 children in hospitals and family homes, offering Recreational Therapy programmes for 42,303 people.
