Barretstown offers free, specially designed camps and programmes for children and their families living with a serious illness.
Barretstown has now launched Barretstown Live, a new online interactive platform dedicated to livestreaming the charity's programmes into homes nationwide.
These programmes are being delivered every Saturday to families who were due to come to Barretstown, and will continue to run for the foreseeable future. In advance of participating in these programmes, families receive a ‘Barretstown Live’ kit which contains everything they need to participate.
Barretstown is also sharing the magic of Barretstown with children across Ireland through Facebook live broadcasts taking place every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 12pm to 2pm.
The Barretstown team has created a specially designed studio on site to deliver these programmes. Participants in both the weekend and weekday programmes will have the opportunity to experience the magic of Barretstown and to participate in many fun activities such as arts and crafts, bakery, family fashion show and discovery from the comfort of their own homes.
