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! Attendance at the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp is free, but we need help with transportation costs. We also provide lodging for families from small towns far away so their child can catch the early morning flight, as well as several scholarships. In addition, Eric’s Camp Fund provides financial support for the camp to enhance the experience of Kansas City campers and all children who attend. The most notable of these is Eric’s Minnow Trust Fund, which ensures everyone has shiners with which to catch the biggest fish in Pearson Pond.

There are many ways you can be involved in sending kids TO camp – and in bringing camp TO the kids in our new Good Cheer program!

Send us an email at [email protected] or call 913-221-6914 and we will give you all the information you need to get the process started.
  • In-kind donations are always welcome and can be anything that you think we might be able to use for our projects. Perhaps you have closets at home that contain well-intentioned but unfinished projects that may never see completion – or maybe you like to roam the aisles of craft stores, looking for great sales on interesting on fun supplies.
