We are a community that includes the kids and families we serve, the volunteers and staff who help us make a difference, the partners and donors who support our mission, and the alumni who keep our community strong. Together, we make “a different kind of healing” possible!
We are not defined by our illnesses, and we certainly don’t let them slow us down. We are kids like every other – looking for fun, friendship and the chance to “raise a little hell.” We find that through a variety of Hole in the Wall programs at Camp and beyond.
As former campers, staff and volunteers, our Camp experiences helped to shape who we are today – so we keep the “Camp spirit” alive by staying involved in events and connected to old friends.
Our day-to-day lives aren’t the same as other families’. Sometimes we don’t know what to expect from one day to the next, but one thing we can always count on is the support, acceptance and friendship of our Camp community. Camp programs haven’t just changed our child’s life – they’ve changed all of us.
We are inspired by the brave children and families Camp serves as well as Paul Newman’s vision of giving back to those who may not have shared the luck he found in his own life. We feel blessed to be part of a community filled with love and friendship.
We are runners, party planners and lemonade stand entrepreneurs who help support Camp’s growing programs. We organize, support and participate in fundraiser events that help make a difference in the lives of campers and their families and are grateful to be a part of Camp’s mission.
Partnering with the Camp has brought something special to our idea of “business as usual.” This is more than supporting a local nonprofit – it’s giving back that has an immediate impact, and our involvement lets us see that first-hand. It’s something the whole company feels good about.
We all found Camp in our own way – some of us have been here since day one, others are former campers and still others are new to Camp – but we share one thing in common: We are dedicated to ensuring the vibrancy of our Founder's dream of providing a Camp experience for seriously ill children and their families, at Camp, in hospitals and in the community.
We’ve dedicated our lives to healing people – but we’ve never seen healing quite like this before. We bring our medical expertise but trade our scrubs in for t-shirts while providing the care that makes Camp possible, along with a healthy dose of fun and laughter.
In the very beginning, Paul Newman assembled a dream team of founding directors whose hearts and hands helped to shape "a different kind of healing." Today, some of those passionate men and women still serve on the Camp's Board of Directors and have been joined by a committed group of leaders who continue to compassionately carry the torch that Newman left in our care.
