GO! Hospital Outreach Program
We also take the experience of Bátor Tábor to those who cannot come and visit our campsite in Hatvan by providing them our GO! hospital outreach program.
Our programmes are free and focus on children who are under hospital treatment or arriving to check-ups. We monthly visit the
- Children Medical Center of Semmelweis University of Budapest
- Department of Child Hematology and Stem-cell Transplantation of Szent László Hospital
We came to realise that we can create the real essence of our camp if we know well what makes an experience a therapeutic one. Therefore, we made up the portable method of therapeutic recreation which has similar effects to the camp’s but does not demand its social and physical frames. Obviously, our principal tool is playing as well but matched up with such a conscious method which can help children with illnesses in creating a more positive and hopeful future, strengthening their self-esteem and development of social skills.
The safety and success of our programme is guaranteed by our volunteers. Therefore, we invest much into their trainings in order to provide them maximal physical and emotional safety every time they step into the hospital and by that consciously, relying on their emotional intelligence, apply the methods of therapeutic recreation.
As a GO! volunteer you get a thorough training on therapeutic recreation and hospital environment. You can expect constant support and be part of a great time to which it is good to belong.
Besides hospitals, we have collaborations with 2 partner foundations and in each year we do an approximate one day long GO! therapy to their small supported ones. We bring joy and happiness to the lives of the children and their families by creative and motivating games.
