Wexford GAA and Leinster Council are delighted to announce the first Kellogg’s Cúl Camp for children on the Autism Spectrum. Pictured at the launch are Maria Banville and Mag Furness from Cottage Autism Network Wexford (CAN) alongside Ray Harris (Cul Camp Co-Ordinator) Bobby Goff (Wexford GAA Coaching Officer) Kevin Foley (Wexford Senior Hurler) and Shane Flanagan (Leinster Council).
The camp which takes place in Innovate Wexford Park on the 6th, 7th and 8th August is a positive initiative which is part of the Wexford GAA WELLness programme sponsored by McCauley Healthy & Beauty Pharmacy. Wexford GAA & CAN hope this camp will pave the way for more of its kind across Leinster and that it will encompass the spirit of community and inclusion of kids with different abilities.
CAN is a support group for people on the Autism Spectrum and their families in Wexford and currently have a membership of over 135 families. They’re very thankful for the huge support, willingness and enthusiasm Wexford GAA & Leinster GAA have shown on this project and are looking forward to a truly brilliant few days in Innovate Wexford Park this August.
