Give the Life-Changing Gift of Camp!
Thank you for your generosity in memory of Meat Loaf

Meatloaf with Campers at The Painted Turtle

The Painted Turtle was immensely grateful to call Meat Loaf a dear friend. He supported The Painted Turtle and the thousands of campers and families we serve every year through his participation in televised celebrity games and events, where he frequently won, and then directed funds to support The Painted Turtle.  He will be greatly missed and The Painted Turtle will keep his legacy of kindness and generosity alive for years to come.


Give the Life-Changing Gift of Camp!

Give the gift of Camp!

When Paul Newman founded The Painted Turtle camp, he envisioned a place where children with serious illnesses could kick back, relax, and “raise a little hell.” Each year, thousands of campers fulfill Paul’s legacy, embarking on journeys to reclaim their childhoods and rediscover just who they are beyond the illnesses that shape their lives. Each donation is greatly appreciated and will help fund the costs of meals, medical care, and mountains of fun. Camp is always free of charge.

Here are some great ways for our adult volunteers to directly support our Virtual Camp initiatives.
