Twenty-two young people aged between four and 20 with the condition came together and enjoyed a week of arts, drama and sports, and even put on a show to wow their friends and family on the last night.
Focusing on speech and language therapy provided by Little Talks, the activities at the school in Winkfield gave the youngsters a chance to relax and socialise while picking up some new skills.
Olivia Greasley said: “It went well. The cheerleading was very popular with the girls, at the end of the week they put on sparkly tops, got their pom-poms and performed a routine they’d practised.”
“The speech therapy was important as it’s the area our children most struggle with but we wanted to make it a fun and good place to be, too.”
Family and friends joined the youngsters on the last night and enjoyed an evening of special performances and karaoke. Ms Greasely, whose daughter Zoe, nine, has Down’s syndrome, added: “It’s good for the siblings and friends to get involved too and the camp offers some respite to the families, giving them time to do the things they perhaps can’t usually with a child with Down’s syndrome.”
