The Painted Turtle is a camp in The SeriousFun Children’s Network, which is a growing global community of innovative camps and programs founded by Paul Newman that provide life-changing support to children with serious illnesses and their families. Since opening in 2004, the Painted Turtle has provided children who suffer from chronic and life-threatening illnesses the opportunity to rediscover the ordinary joys of being a child through a year-round camp and hospital outreach programs. To date, over 22,832 children and their families have been served by over 10,281 doctors, nurses and program volunteers. No child or family pays to attend The Painted Turtle.
