In fact, sick children and adolescents are exposed to invasive or long-term therapies, often with intense periods of hospitalization, whose fear and fatigue dictated by the treatments come from the lack of normal socialization with peers. With the awareness that the course of treatment is complex and that not everyone heals, but that everyone has the right to happiness, the mission of Dynamo Camp Onlus is to offer sick children the opportunity to “just be children” and improve the quality of life for their families.
