"Recapturing the magic of childhood..."

... one summer camp at a time.


Our mission is to continue Eric’s dream to  share the magic of The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Ashford, Connecticut with children from Kansas City and surrounding communities whose childhoods have been interrupted by cancer.

Good Cheer

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Eric’s Camp Fund, a new program has been created that will mean that even more families from the Kansas City area will be touched by Eric’s dream of making life a little brighter for these great kids. 

How to help

Financial contributions are certainly welcome – and very much appreciated. Your contributions to Eric’s Camp Fund go toward travel expenses to get the kids to the camp in Connecticut, and here in town, your funds help us bring the camp experience to kids in area hospitals. Plus, we can always use volunteers or even extra crayons – everything helps!
