Dynamo Camp 2022

THE SUMMER OF NERF 2022 STARTS AND SCATENAILDIVERTIMENTO

Nerf donates Super Soaker blasters to Dynamo Camp to add a fun tool to the Recreational Therapy practiced in the water. But not only that, once school is over and summer has begun, the selections for the highly anticipated Nerf Challenge 2022 start: the final for the title of Italian Champion on July 16 in Rimini.

Every year, in Italy alone, there are more than 10 thousand minors suffering from serious or chronic diseases. Allowing children with disabilities to try their hand at activities with accessible and ideal equipment to entertain everyone in safety, guarantees unique benefits: boys and girls, and consequently also their families, experience new stimuli in a moment of play and carefree. It is with this intent that the Super Soakers, the Nerf water blasters, become a tool of fun and inclusion for the many guests of the magnificent Dynamo Camp site in Limestre (Pistoia), an equipped oasis of over 900 hectares affiliated to the WWF. The Nerf blasters, in fact, throughout the summer of 2022 will be used in the Recreational Therapy activities in the pool that the Dynamo Camp Onlus Foundation has been practicing for over 15 years. Thus begins the Summer of Nerf 2022, the official hashtag is ScatenaIlDivertimento : parents and children will be able to share their memorable and hilarious moments with Nerf blasters on all social networks while supporting the Super Soaker initiative in favor of Dynamo Camp. The selections are already underway in the best toy shops of the Peninsula, the final is scheduled for Saturday 16 July: the coveted title of Italian Champion is at stake. It will be one of the main events of Joy Rimini, the summer festival scheduled from 14 to 17 July and dedicated to pop culture, gaming in all its forms, the world of comics and the cosplay phenomenon. The special guests of the grand final, in addition to the very lucky Nerf Challenge qualifiers, will be some children of Dynamo Camp who with their families will live a day of friendship, fun and inclusion thanks to play, a universal language that unites and unites.
