WHAT WE DO
In 1988, Paul Newman opened The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut so that children coping with serious illnesses could have a special hideout where they could simply be kids. The Camp, which served 288 campers its first year, has 25,000 children and family members now experiencing “a different kind of healing” annually. Each year, 2,500 are served onsite and 20,000 visits by the Hospital Outreach Program bring the fun and friendship of Camp into more than 25 sites throughout the Northeast – all free of charge.

At Camp, former camper Ross was able to break out of the shell that his illness had created and discover his truest self. Watch how his Hole in the Wall experience became an enduring source of creativity and inspiration in the latest Healing Feeling installment.
