Dear Camp…

Share your Camp Story, Quote, or Magic Moment with us!

Share Your StoryHow do you explain the magic that is Camp? The Painted Turtle has found that the best way to explain the wonder of Camp is through you! It’s the voices of campers and their families, the dedicated volunteers, the devoted staff members, and the generous supporters that truly can demonstrate how life-changing The Painted Turtle can be for children with serious medical conditions.

By allowing The Painted Turtle to share your experiences, our hope is that you will help inspire others to connect with camp.
So when something amazing happens at camp we want to hear about it! Tell us your funny, silly, poignant, wonderful, Campy, magical moments.

Please email dearcamp@thepaintedturtle.org and share the magic!

“Everyone needs to come to Camp. Moments here are moments that they write books about, and they will stay with you forever. You not only get to be part of these moments, you get to help create them. You get to be part of someone’s life and, if you’re lucky, you can help change it.”
– Claire Wilkins, summer staff
