Review for Hole in the Wall Gang Fund, Inc., New Haven, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Love this place. Sheer madness and genius. Started as clown, then volunteer who wouldn't leave, I help with galas and fundraisers; I live with the voices of campers in my heart Every Single Day. They touch you in ways you can only experience, not imagine! I've learned so much, and keep learning. The counselors are incredibly gifted; they feed off the kids who "give it right back to you, yeah". Camp has taught me a whole new way to listen to a child, a whole new way to give a rip!

As long as Paul Newman's vision remains the same, creating a camp for certain kids to Raise a Little Hell (that's no joke), I'd like more Hole in the Wall Camps (and less McDonald's)! I want billions and billions served!

Role:  Volunteer & Started in 1997. Was a clown, volunteer, work with the galas and fundraisers; am happy donor and big mouth for Camp.
