Hole in the Wall Gang Camp coming to the Eastern Shore
47ABC – An organization, with a mission of helping seriously ill children and their families, is set to open a second location in Maryland. James Canton, CEO of the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, joined the morning team to tell us more about their organization.
Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, the organization gives every child, no matter their illness, the chance to forget about their illness for a moment and enjoy life. It’s a variety of year-round programs offered onsite, in hospitals, in clinics, and in camper homes and communities.
Kids and families can participate in anything from arts and crafts to swimming, boating, and much more. Now they’re setting up a location right here on the eastern shore.
“The opportunity for this location was extraordinary, it presented itself as a gift to us,” says CEO James Canton. “Hope is restored and there’s no doubt that joy is created and healing happens so just to be a part of something that is so meaningful and genuinely important and healing, it’s an incredible privilege.”
The Maryland location has plans to open in the summer of 2023 to serve mid-Atlantic families most impacted by serious illnesses. The camp will be at Aspen Institute’s 166-acre Wye River Conference Center in Queenstown, Maryland.
