As the parent of a child with a serious medical condition, we understand that you might be searching for more information about The Painted Turtle. We hope that you will use this section as a starting place for your exploration and research.

For children under the age of 18 who have been campers at The Painted Turtle, our Outpost program offers “Turtle-Grams” to previous campers who will be hospitalized or on bed rest for three days or more.  “Turtle-Grams” packages deliver a healthy dose of camp cheer and aim to offer some comfort and fun to our campers when they’re not at camp!  If you are a parent or guardian and your child qualifies for this program, please visit our Outpost program page to request a Turtle-Gram for your camper.

 It has been a big year for our daughter medically.  Knowing that camp is coming soon brings joy when times are tough. She is so excited thinking about camp. She talks about how great camp is all year! Thank you for giving her so much joy! – Camper Parent
