New international research proves: We change lives!

SeriousFun Children’s Network International Camp Association which Bátor Tábor is proud member of, and the American Institutes for Research® joint study found that more than 80 percent of those who participate in therapeutical recreation program as seriously ill children are positively influenced by camp experiences.

Bátor Tábor launches Digital Camp website

We launched in April our Digital home camp, aiming to help children fighting chronical diseases through online. This summer, the program culminates with the launch of a microsite, an online knowledge bank gathering a repertoir of games, ideas based on our therapeutical recreation methodology.

How to transform a crisis into an opportunity?

In the past few days and presumably in the coming weeks as well, we are facing challenges that are unprecedented in our life. Hereby, Schumicky Júlia, the psychologist of Bátor Tábor shares her thoughts and pieces of advice.

Our Mission

We change lives.

Since 2001 Bátor Tábor, the ‘camp of courage’ is dedicated to provide life-changing experiences to seriously ill children and their families, and also to those families who have suffered the loss of a child. We bring laughter and joy to the hospital beds and through our online programs within the walls of the children’s home with the purpose to give strength and courage in difficult situations through play and fun.

As the therapeutic recreation center of the Central European region, we hold programs in Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. To international sessions in Hungary we welcome campers from the other 3 mentioned country, also volunteers from all around the globe.

We believe that the sun always shines above the clouds.

To funding opportunities


An adventure that
you will remember in your whole life.

We organise therapeutic recreation programs Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and in The Czech Republic for seriously ill children to give them life-changing experiences.

In the meantime the lives of our volunteers might change too.  They become part of a vibrant community where about 100 people from different background work together for the same goal. This make them learn a lot about themselves, about their own boundaries, and just like our campers they realise that they are heroes. This is how we change the world together.

“We can finally be in a place for a few days where no one thinks that we are different, just because we have an ill child. We are able to feel happy for everything.”
