In 1988, Paul Newman opened The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut so that children coping with cancer and other serious illnesses could have a special hideout where they could simply be kids. The Camp, which served 288 campers its first year, now serves more than 20,000 children and family members annually by providing a “different kind of healing”, completely free of charge. 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. In the words of one young camper, “I love it here. Sometimes you think being so sick gives you limits, but the Camp helps you try anything.”
