We were sent this via Cat from Transplant Kids and thought we would share it.
TACKERS Transplant Adventure Camp for Kids is accepting applications for young transplantees to attend.
The camp runs from the 19th-26th of March 2011 and is for transplant children aged from 8-15 and sometimes a little older.
They collect the participants from Geneva International Airport on the 19th and take them back and check them in on the 26th.
Most kids have NEVER skied before and many have never been away from home.
They provide all the ski equipment, accident insurance, 24 hr supervision, all activities, food and lodgings.
Camp participation is €350 (roughly $470 or £300) which covers all of the above.
Apartments, hotels and chalets are available for any accompanying persons.

The camp is in Anzère in the Swiss Alps, our own son Aaron has had the privilege of attending a few times now and loved it, Liz who runs it is amazing, she herself has had a liver transplant, we’ve never gone as a family (simply not affordable to us) Aaron has always gone himself offering him independence & confidence as well as loads of fun with others just like him who have had a life saving organ transplant!
