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.

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is planning to return to camper-exclusive programming in summer 2022 with seven, five-day sessions operating at a reduced capacity and various COVID-19 safety protocols incorporated including a requirement that all participants be fully vaccinated. The summer program will also include two, four-day Family Camps for those unable to participate in camper-exclusive programming, which will follow the 2021 summer program model with on-site testing, physical distancing, masking and other COVID-19 safety guidelines. And a wide array of alternative and virtual programming will also remain available to our children and families.

While we remain hopeful that Hole in the Wall’s 35th summer will more closely resemble a traditional season, Camp’s medical team will continue following local, state and national public health guidelines and those considerations will ultimately determine how we can most safely conduct our on-site program.

Camper Story

I came here to help the campers overcome their hardships, but I'm amazed by how much they helped put my own difficulties in perspective.

Camp’s favorite song is Stars in the Sky.
