The Painted Turtleís mission is to provide a year-round, life-changing environment and authentic camp experience for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses. The Painted Turtle supports childrenís medical needs, inspires them to reach beyond their illnesses, and provides care, education and respite for their families. All campers and families attend free of charge.
Prior to opening, The Painted Turtle collaborated with the California Childrenís Hospital Association, Center for Child Health Outcomes, and Family Voices to conduct an assessment determining the need for a medical specialty camp in California. The assessment confirmed that there were thousands of children in California with chronic illnesses who did not have access to an authentic camp experience due to their medical conditions. The study also found that these children can significantly benefit from a positive camp experience. The Painted Turtle is the only multi-disease medical camp of its kind on the West Coast with programs designed for underserved pediatric illness groups.
