PAINTED TURTLE CAMP

The Painted Turtle Camp (PTC) is the only multi-disease medical camp of its kind. It takes place in Santa Monica, California and is cofounded by Paul Newman. The camp’s mission is to provide a year-round life-changing experience to children impacted by various chronic illnesses. Each year, we use funds raised by our philanthropy events to sponsor chapter members to travel to the PTC as camp counselors. We are so lucky to be a part of this amazing program!

“The Painted Turtle is truly the most special place on Earth. This camp allows kids who spend most of their time feeling like their conditions define them to feel accepted and loved. It brings me so much joy to see these campers gain confidence and embrace their silliness.”

- Megan O’Meara, Painted Turtle Camp Counselor
