Have you ever witnessed something truly remarkable and inspiring? At Hole in the Wall Gang, life-changing stories occur on a daily basis as the organization works to provide children with serious medical conditions the chance to discover the world of possibilities that camp has to offer. 

Camp is not only important for child development, it's a fun life experience that fosters friendships and incites adventure and exploration. But many kids with serious illnesses miss out on the opportunity to go to camp. That's where Hole in the Wall Gang steps in. With one simple mission - that every child, no matter their illness, can experience the transformational spirit and friendships that go hand-in-hand with camp - Hole in the Wall Gang provides more than 20,000 children annually the opportunity to experience camp that otherwise may not be able to. It's because of these deserving efforts that the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust is honored to award the organization with a grant to continue impacting kids through the expansion of their Hospital Outreach Program, which brings the playful spirit of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp to children and families in hospital settings.
