The health and safety of our attendees are definitely our most utmost priority. So, in a time of great concern and uncertainty associated with the COVID19 virus both nationally and internationally, Beitostølen Healthsports Center and the organizing committee of the CAPA 2020 symposium have made the following decision:

The CAPA 2020 Symposium first postponed until 2021, has now been postponed until 2022.

The new dates for the CAPA 2022 Symposium are:

  • Monday 23th of May 2022; The National APA seminar
  • Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th of May; The International Symposium CAPA 2022

The CAPA 2022 Symposium will be held the week after the EACD Conference in Barcelona; 18th – 21th of May 2022.

From the 10th of November the new website will be; – until then

The CAPA 2022 Symposium “Capturing the magic – participation for all“ will showcase the current state of the evidence in the field of disability and rehabilitation and highlight clinical benefits and opportunities. Because the Symposium aims to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Beitostølen Healthsports Center (BHC), and Adapted Physical Activity (APA) is the primary intervention provided at BHC for enhancing participation in people with disabilities, the magic of group-based APA will have a special focus in the Symposium.

Our main objectives have been and still are; to gather people from around the world for meetings, discussions, fruitful collaborations, and to present the work at the Healthsports Center and the Norwegian Nature and culture. We really want to make this happen, not just online, we want people to attend and meet. Today it seems unlikely that the symposium could take place in June 2021, so that’s the reason for the second postponement.

Take care, and welcome to Beitostølen the last week of May 2022.
