BENEFITING: The Painted Turtle

Beanie Feldstein

THE STORY:

The Painted Turtle is the sixth addition to Paul Newman’s family of Hole in the Wall Camps for seriously ill children. It is also the only multi-disease camp and family care center of its kind on the West Coast. Through educational, therapeutic, safe, and just plain fun summer camp and year-round programs, The Painted Turtle provides a life-changing experience to children whose daily struggles often diminish both their desire to be well and their ability to lead a rich, productive life.

The Painted Turtle offers an exhilarating, challenging, and nurturing array of traditional summer camp recreational activities, seamlessly intertwined with programs that inspire children to become more self-confident and self-reliant, as well as more cooperative with their medical caregivers. There is a strong healing potential in the lessons children learn and the friendships they form at The Painted Turtle.

At first glance, Hole in the Wall Camps look like any other traditional summer camp. There are swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding, arts and crafts, ropes courses, a state of the art gymnasium, and nature activities. Yet, look more closely and you will find that at The Painted Turtle, every child, no matter their illness or capacity, can participate fully in every single activity, because of the subtle, yet liberating, access components built right into the camp facilities themselves.
