For Parents

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.
