Doolin Coast Guard members helped out with a C.A.M.P. event in Lahinch today. C.A.M.P Eireann were based at the Army Camp in Lahinch this week. C.A.M.P ( Chesire Adventure Motivation Project ) began through the cooperation of the Irish Air Corp and the Chesire Foundation of Ireland. Residents of Chesire Homes are all adults with physical disabilities. C.A.M.P. allows persons with serious physical disabilities to improve self esteem, become aware of their potential and become more independent through the use of activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, swimming and survival activities .The organisation provides a meaningful challenge and promotes the welfare and independence of all participants. The Air Corp provided instructors in rock climbing and other activities. The organistion provides constant training of new leaders so the project can continue.

Today some of the participants were taken on a Hover Craft driven by an  Air Corp Corporal at Lahinch Beach and also climbed on the C.A.M.P. climbing wall back at the Army Camp.
