Hole in the Wall Gang Camp's Hospital Outreach® Program
The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is dedicated to providing a different kind of healing to seriously ill children and their families throughout the Northeast, free of charge. Founded in 1988 by actor Paul Newman, it’s a community that celebrates the fun, friendship and spirit of childhood where every kid can “raise a little hell.”
AngelRide is the driving force behind the growth of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp's Hospital Outreach® Program which brings the hopeful, playful spirit of The Hole In The Wall Gang Camp to hospitalized children too sick to attend the actual Camp. In 2017, HOP expanded to include 40 hospitals and clinics, with 30+ specialists making 30,000 child hospital visits annually.
By offering these unique, creative and developmentally appropriate activities and interactions, the program helps restore joy and laughter in a time often laden with fear, stress and uncertainty. It works collaboratively with hospital staff to enhance, augment or support existing programs focused on improving quality of life during treatment.
