Why is it important to keep talking about inclusion and inclusive activities? At Play and Train, we believe in building a more accessible world with equal opportunities for everyone, and it is essential to continue working towards social inclusion.
For this reason, during the summer months, it is essential to continue promoting an inclusive sport through camps. Not only are the activities adapted so that all children and young people can participate, but the coexistence between children with and without disabilities reinforces values such as teamwork, socialisation, empathy and friendship. The Campamentos Inlcusivos de La Oliva and the Casal Probitas are two good examples of this.
The Town Council of La Oliva, for the second year, with Play and Train and with the collaboration of the Satocan Júngel Sanjuán Foundation, had made available to the families of the municipality a camp that runs during the day along July and August. The camp offers activities such as a swimming pool, paddle tennis and many games.
For its six years, the Casal Probitas, run by Play and Train in collaboration with the Probitas Foundation, has been aimed at children with disabilities and risk of social exclusion in its sixth year. It aims to enable children from the Cerdanya region to enjoy recreational and sporting activities during August with three weeks of day camps with adventure activities, including canoeing, archery, climbing and orienteering.
In both camps, we have observed that the diversity of the participants has enriched their experience, making them aware of each other’s strengths and creating spaces of collaboration and understanding between them.
