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.

2023 CPISRA / IWAS Recreation Camps

In 2023, we are pleased to announce we are holding a number of Recreation Camps. We see the return of the Teen camp from 10-14 April at the Bendrigg Trust near Kendal.

From the 31st July – 4th August we are holding our third family camp at the Lake District Calvert Trust near Keswick.

Finally, we are looking forward to our 2023 adult camp from the 25-29th September at the new venue of the Bendrigg Trust.

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.

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!
