“The weekend was so empowering. I left feeling taller and stronger and realised my son has epilepsy, but has no barriers to what he can achieve in life given the opportunity. Thank you.”
- From someone who attended our family camp at Treharris in 2018
You will be able to make friends and enjoy the day, safe in the knowledge help is on hand. The instructors will encourage everyone to have a go and inspire you to achieve your potential.

Parents and carers will have the opportunity to meet other families, share stories and support each other. Epilepsy healthcare professionals, Epilepsy Action volunteers and staff will be available to provide further information and advice.

Activities are for children and adults of all ages with qualified instructors at the centre with full safety equipment and instruction provided. First aiders will be on hand at the event to help if needed.

Leave with a big smile on your face, having made memories and knowing you are not alone.
