The Brothers of Phi Kappa Tau invite you to help a child have the best summer of their life at Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.

Greetings! My name is Christopher Heiman. This spring my fellow brother Tommy Grasso and I will be directing the 4th official Sand Wars event, a volleyball tournament and fundraiser hosted by Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity.

This event will raise money for the Hole in the Wall Camps, an organization created by Paul Newman that provides life-changing experiences for terminally ill children afflicted with cancer or other serious blood diseases.

This organization gives them access to special summer camps where they can play and live-out their childhood without restraint.

By giving children the resources, courage and, most of all, the freedom they need to succeed, anything and everything is possible. We witness children conquering obstacles and achieving goals year-round at our camps. Camp allows children to regain their independence, fostering optimism and personal growth and instilling a sense of stability resulting in increased compliance with their medical conditions and treatments. Activities are designed to inspire children to realize their full potential, encourage teamwork and social interaction and boost self-esteem and confidence.

HOLE IN THE WALL PHILISOPHY:

Children First – Children are children first; their abilities and medical conditions do not define them. All of the activities at camp, from meal time and boating, to ropes courses and cabin chats, are designed to be child-centered.

Therapeutic Play – Everything at camp incorporates intentional programming and is based on the principles of therapeutic recreation. Camp activities build confidence, independence and optimism.

Challenge By Choice – Each individual chooses to what extent they participate in each activity depending on their appropriate level of challenge. Through challenge by choice, children have the opportunity to try new things in an environment that is positive and exciting.

Barrier Free – Camp and camp activities are universally accessible making it possible for children to participate in any activity they choose. In addition, children of all backgrounds, circumstances and with a wide variety of medical conditions are welcome, always free of charge.
