The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp

Summer Camp

At the core of all of our programming is our signature summer program. Seven glorious week-long sessions in Ashford, Conn. that serve seriously ill children and one additional week dedicated to their healthy siblings. Campers aged 7 – 15 ride horses, create crafts, swim and so much more, as they bond with other children facing similar challenges and learn they are capable of so much more than they ever thought possible.

Camper Story

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp changed my life the second I walked onto Camp in 2011. I cried the day before I came to Camp for the first time because I thought it would be the worst week of my life and that it would make me feel worse than I already did. I cried the day I left as a camper for the last time because Camp made me realize that I was not a victim, I am not an embarrassment, and I should never feel anything but happy. There’s no other place in the world where I can sing at the top of my lungs, jump off a tower knowing that nothing would ever happen to me, feel love the second I entered, and most importantly, not be made into an awkward embarrassment because I had leukemia.
