Recreation

CPISRA is passionate about promoting sport for recreation, well-being and enjoyment, as well as sport development and competition. CPISRA’s primary objective for Recreation is to increase the number of people with Cerebral Palsy and related neurological conditions undertaking regular physical activity for enjoyment. We need to achieve this by inspiring people to try a recreational activity, by raising awareness of the fun, fitness, psychological, well-being and social benefits of participation and to show the range of possible activities.

Recreation Demand Surveys – Take part today!

At CPISRA, we are looking for ways to develop our recreational opportunities for people with cerebral palsy and related conditions around the world. During November and December 2022, we are gathering the views of people with CP and related conditions, parents and carers of people with CP and related conditions, and health and sport professionals working with people with CP and related conditions.

These surveys will help CPISRA ensure that we are offering the recreational opportunities that you want and need. By completing the survey, you will help shape CPISRA’s future recreation programmes.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete. Please click below for the survey relevant to you.

2020 Family Camp Survey

In September 2019, we circulated a survey to all our members, mailing list and shared it on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. This survey aimed to learn what demand there was for a Family Recreation Camp, and also what this Family Camp should involve.

We will be issuing a follow-up survey in October 2022.


2019 Adult Outdoor Recreation Camp

The Inaugural International Outdoor Recreation Camp was held at the Calvert Trust Lake District (UK) in September 2019. The camp was open to adults aged 18+ with Cerebral Palsy and related conditions. The week was throughly enjoyed by all and included high ropes courses, canoeing, cycling and sailing. It was wonderful to see personal boundaries being pushed, everyone supporting each other and new friendships being made!
