The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp

Hero’s Journey® Program

Hero's JourneyFor teens who have aged out of our summer camp program, we offer the Hero’s Journey® program. Located in the woods of Connecticut, this weeklong program teaches self-reliance, positive communication and teamwork through wilderness first aid training and a variety of exciting challenges. The journey provides participants with opportunities to step outside comfort zones, discover more about themselves and become “the hero of their own story.”
