Starting in 1981 – Britain’s ‘Year of the Disabled’ – the Mersea Island Festival has been an annual event each August at Essex Outdoors Mersea (East Mersea Youth Camp). The Festival aims to bring together children, young people and adults with or without a physical or learning disability to take part in a wide variety of activities that challenge and stimulate, helping to build the confidence and feelings of self worth in participants. At the same time they are fun and exciting and an opportunity to make new friends.

What’s on offer?
Both camps include a wide variety of activities, including but not limited to zip wire, climbing, archery, dancing, swimming, fishing, pitch & put.. etc. Each year the Festival has a different theme and the programme will be planned around this. Some of the activities from previous years are shown on our website. We can’t promise them all and they are subject to availability.

Sport: activity, karate
Colchester, United Kingdom

We are a local karate school offering martial arts training to children and adults in the area, including Wado Ryu karate, Tai Chi, Cage Fitness, and fitness training.

If you're looking to learn a new skill, lose weight, and improve tone and muscle, karate is the perfect option.
Yet karate - and martial arts as a whole - has so much more to offer than physical health and fitness benefits.
Whilst active, martial arts are centred around respect for yourself and other, and children and adults alike have seen huge improvements in their motor skills, balance, self-confidence, and self-control.

Having worked with a range of able and disabled students, as well as behavioural problems and learning difficulties, we've had positive feedback from both parents and teachers who have all noticed a marked and positive chance in children's behaviour, attitude and feelings of self-worth.
