Barretstown provides a medically-endorsed programme of arts, adventure and fun activities for children with cancer and other serious illnesses.
Children aged 7 to 17 come from Ireland and all over Europe to take part in the 10-day residential programme. They find new skills to cope with their illness and are helped to make real changes to their lives. By facing new challenges in a supportive environment, these children rediscover their self-esteem, improve their self-image - all adding up to 'Serious Fun'.
