SeriousFun Children's NetworkSeriousFun Children's Network

SeriousFun Children’s Network (formerly The Association of Hole in the Wall Camps) is an international family of camps and programs that provide life-changing experiences to children with serious medical conditions, always free of charge. It all began with a brilliant idea coupled with a little bit of luck and a whole lot of laughter.

I will be forever grateful for this gift you have given my son and our family. You have made a difference.

Actor and philanthropist Paul Newman’s dream of opening a camp for children with serious medical conditions became a reality in 1988. After years of giving money to different charities, Newman decided to create one of his own – a camp for children with serious medical conditions. He envisioned the camps as places where children could escape the fear, pain and loneliness of their conditions, kick back and “raise a little hell.” This idea has flourished and today it has become a global family of camps for children with serious medical conditions. True to his dream, more than 384,000 children and families from over 50 countries have received the restorative support of a Hole in the Wall Camp experience that creates opportunities for children and their families to reach beyond serious illness and discover joy, confidence and a new world of possibilities—always free of charge.

Our identity embodies the root of our work—highlighting Paul Newman’s belief that taking fun seriously can make a real difference in the lives of children who need it most. We are committed to the cherished Hole in the Wall history and those core values that all of our camps and programs share. Because we all believe, as Paul did, that every kid deserves the chance to kick back and simply be a kid. Click here to read a recent "Thank You" letter.
