European HD Youth Camp Application August 7-13, 2016
HDYO and our European HD Association partners are excited to host the European HD Youth Camp for 2016 in Kent, England. 40 Young people from across Europe will be able to attend the event. The goal of camp is to offer young people the chance to meet other young people impacted by HD, to learn about HD through educational workshops, to share experiences through sharing sessions and to have plenty of fun participating in the many on-site activities, such as ropes courses, archery and much more. We hope young people attending camp will benefit by feeling less isolated, more supported, as well coming away from camp with an improved understanding of HD and strong peer connections with other young people in similar situations. There will be an experienced HD team of professionals and volunteers on-site to support young people at all times.

To be eligible for the camp you must be:

- Aged between 15-25 (you must be aged 15 at the time of the camp)

To apply for camp please fill in the application form below to the best of your knowledge. For young people under 18 we request some information from the parent/guardian(s). We ask a range of questions about your circumstances with regards to HD so that we can gain a better understanding of your experience of being impacted by HD. There are a limited number of spots so successful applicants will be decided upon based on need by a review panel. Costs (including camp fees, travel and food) will be covered for each participant. Campers MUST have a valid passport to attend camp (unless from England & Wales). If you have any questions prior to submission of the application you can contact HDYO Project Coordinator, Matt Ellison - matt@hdyo.org
