The Painted Turtle began as a dream in 1999 when Paul Newman and Page
Adler, along with a group of other dedicated individuals,
co-founded The Painted Turtle to let kids with medical
conditions just be kids. Through the ongoing commitment of these
individuals, many of whom sit on our board today, the dream of
The Painted Turtle became a reality. Located just outside of Los
Angeles in Lake Hughes, California, The Painted Turtle has served
tens of thousands of children and families since opening in
SeriousFun Children’s Network — Our Family of Camps
The Painted Turtle is proud to be part of the SeriousFun Children’s Network, a global community of 30 camps and programs designed to empower children to see beyond their medical conditions. Beginning with the first camp founded by Paul Newman in 1988, SeriousFun has now delivered more than one million camp experiences to children and family members from over 50 countries. Each camp is an independent nonprofit organization made possible by generous donations to serve all children at no cost to their families.
