Camp Cando Organisation
Camp Cando is a grass roots voluntary organisation for young people with complexity of special and behavioural needs. Every year we give a group of young people from London the opportunity to spend a life enhancing and fun week away from home in the summer. Our team of helpers ensure an excellent standard of care and attention to meet the campers’ individual needs. The week also provides parents and carers with respite from full-time caring.
Camp Cando Organisation is a registered charity. Funds for the week’s holiday are raised by voluntary members of the charity through activities such as fancy dress parties, raffles, and sponsored events. We have also been successful in generating some corporate sponsorship.
We are supported in many ways by individuals who are not necessarily able to give up a week of their time to come to Camp, and also by companies and organisations.
We are always looking for new volunteers to be helpers for the week of camp. Our volunteers at Camp come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some volunteers have joined us through their profession such as nursing or teaching but many come on Camp in order to give something back to society by volunteering for a week. Our helpers on camp are reference checked and CRB checked. Our team of helpers include nurses, teachers, first aiders, minibus drivers and a chef.
