As The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp celebrated its 25th summer, CBS Sunday Morning got a rare peek inside the special hideout that founder Paul Newman created for children with serious illnesses to experience “a different kind of healing.”
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, founded by actor Paul Newman, helps give seriously ill children a place to go for a week of carefree fun in an open and loving environment.
Martha Teichner reports on the camp's special gifts to help heal children and their families.
Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is a community dedicated to providing "a different kind of healing" to children and their families coping with cancer, sickle cell anemia and other serious illnesses. Through summer sessions and family weekend programs at the Camp in Ashford, Connecticut, and year-round outreach to hospitals and clinics throughout the Northeast, the Camp serves more than 20,000 children and family members annually. All services are free of charge. Learn more
