Day 358: Hole in the Wall Gang
Paul Newman is more than just great acting and salad dressing, in 1988 he founded the Hole in the Wall Gang camp to provide children dealing with cancer and other illnesses to enjoy a summer camp experience with their families. This is a wonderful way for kids to get out of the hospital and enjoy the outdoors on their road to wellness.
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, Connecticut is a nonprofit, residential summer camp and year-round center serving children and their families coping with cancer and other serious illnesses and conditions.
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp provides year-round programming, offering an outstanding summer camp experience for more than 1,000 seriously ill children, as well as 24 weekend programs from fall through spring for approximately 3,000 campers, along with their families and caregivers. The Camp’s year-round Hospital Outreach Program brings the hopeful and playful spirit of Camp to seriously ill hospitalized children, providing services to approximately 11,000 children in sixteen hospitals from New York to Boston each year. Altogether, the Camp serves more than 15,000 children annually.
