THE STORY:

The Painted Turtle is a camp for kids diagnosed with chronic or life threatening illnesses part of the Serious Fun Network, a charity founded by Paul Newman. These camps provide an environment for children to challenge themselves in ways they never found imaginable and to empower their souls to overcome the adversities life has thrown their way. Many of these kids have been told “no” their entire lives. At camp, for the first time they hear the words “Yes! Yes! Yes!” providing them an escape to an illustrious world full of grand undertakings. For the first time in their lives this unique population of adolescents is surrounded by fellow peers who have been presented with similar hardships. The Painted Turtle is a world of enchantment, providing a visceral experience to campers and people from all over the world that they will carry with them every step of their journey.
Here on this website, lies an opportunity to bring awareness and funding to support the camp and organization we love so much. We are a group of young individuals hired as full time staff for the summer of 2013 seeking to raise as many finances as possible to help revive all of the horror that swallowed the community of Lake Hughes, California. We will be traversing our way from San Diego up the Pacific Coast in hopes of ending in Seattle. Along the way the turtle presence will be seen from national parks, to unforgiving coast lines to vibrant cities. The story of the Painted Turtle will shine its way through the Pacific and burn holes one by one through the daunting cloud of the Powerhouse fire. What is being referred to as “The Turtle Trek” is a chance for anyone associated with the Painted Turtle to post their pictures or video of their summer experience and how they are carrying the magic with them everywhere they go. With your help and sincere donations we can all work towards one common goal: to revive The Painted Turtle and ensure that by this time next year it will be invigorated and strong as ever, exemplifying the courage to rise out of the ashes ultimately transforming into the summer of the Phoenix.
