International Holiday Camp

The OMV provides the British delegation to the annual “Order of Malta International Holiday Camp”, which is hosted by a different nation for a week during the summer.

Over 450 disabled guests and helpers from 20 different countries, in Europe and beyond are involved and the idea is to give the disabled guests a chance to share and experience the culture of another country with like-minded people.

In 2016 Poland will be the host nation, the Camp will be near Krakow on the banks of the Vistula river. Every Camp has a moto, and this year it is “One for all, and all for one” – a musketeer-inspired nod to the French who hosted in 2015. It also reflects solidarity, brotherhood and unity – values that have played important roles in Polish history. Get a taste of the amazing atmosphere, and see what they are planning for the Camp in this trailer film – https://vimeo.com/156341208.


The Team

The “Team” usually comprises of about 20 people, which means Helpers are caring for Guests on an almost one-to-one ratio.

Throughout the week the Guests are given opportunities to try activities that might not normally be accessible to them including; Sailing, Horse Riding, Scuba-Diving, a flight in a light aircraft or Hot Air Balloon. There are also awesome discos each evening that are the highlight for many of the Guests, as wheelchairs rock n’roll the night away.
