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, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2012-13 with 20,000 children and family members now experiencing “a different kind of healing” annually. Each year, 2,500 are served onsite and 19,000 visits by the Hospital Outreach Program bring the fun and friendship of Camp into more than 20 sites throughout the Northeast – all free of charge.

Tamara attended The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp during its very first summer in 1988. In May 2013, she returned to Camp for the first time in more than 20 years and rediscovered special memories that moved her to give back in a very inspirational way. Watch Tamara’s story and witness the enduring power of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in the eighth installment of Camp’s “Healing Feeling” series.
