Dynamo Camp, a non-profit organization, offers free-of-charge Therapeutic Recreation programs to children and teenagers age 6-17 affected by serious or chronic illnesses, as well as to their families and healthy siblings. The activities take place at Camp in Tuscany and – thanks to both Outreach program and DynamoOffCamp truck – in hospitals and foster homes, and in the major Italian cities.
Located in Limestre (Pistoia province), Dynamo Camp is the first Therapeutic Recreation Camp in Italy. Dynamo Camp is a member of SeriousFun Children’s Network, a world-wide network of camps founded by Paul Newman in 1988.
The Therapeutic Recreation model – which is the basis of Dynamo’s programs – focuses on inclusion and socialization. All activities are managed by qualified staff and specialized medical personnel.
Since 2007, more than 35,000 children, teenagers and parents have laughed, played and reached beyond their limits thanks to Dynamo Camp’s Therapeutic Recreation.
