Barretstown is a camp founded by Paul Newman that gives children and teenagers with serious illnesses the chance to take a break from their hospital routine

Following a charity bake sale of the King’s Cake, Europastry will work together with the Fundación Aladina to give a group of children and teenage cancer patients from Spain the chance to enjoy a magical holiday at Camp Barretstown next summer. This camp is unique because all the young people who go there have cancer or another serious illness. Every year Aladina Foundation makes it possible for a large group Spanish kids suffering with cancer to attend Barretstown Camp completely free.

In 1994 the Irish government donated to the organisation, which was founded by Paul Newman, a magnificent castle nestled in the hills of County Wicklow (Dublin) in order to establish the largest camp for children with cancer in Europe, in Barretstown.

In Summer 2013, a total of 125 Spanish children between the ages of 7 and 17 years old were selected from 27 hospitals from all parts of Spain to come to Barretstown.
