 Analysis of CPISRA Camps Questionnaire

Should CPISRA hold and encourage international sports and/or activity camps? If so what sort of camps? To answer these questions CPISRA conducted an online questionnaire/survey at the end of last year. The analysis of the responses is now complete and the overwhelming response was YES to Camps.


This questionnaire was part of research that CPISRA is doing into the demand for sports camps and recreational activity camps for individuals with Cerebral Palsy or other neurological conditions. It also looked at individuals’ participation in sports and recreation.

We very much thank all the people that participated in the survey.

The reports and analysis of the responses to the questionnaire/survey are below:
