DOUBLE Your Gift and Help Keep The Campfires Burning

SeriousFun camps and programs remain as committed as ever to supporting children living with serious illness and their family members—and camps need you to help them through this unprecedented time.

Below, please listen to a special message from Clea Newman, SeriousFun Ambassador and youngest daughter of our founder, Paul Newman, to find out how your support can go TWICE as far this season through the generosity of the Newman family.

Serious Impact

SeriousFun camps and programs provide families navigating serious illnesses with a much-needed break. These programs offer friendship, adventure, and joy to these inspiring children who show us what it means to be resilient in the face of adversity.

Blazing Trails

Around the world, our camps and programs have swiftly changed course and created all types of alternative programming and convening children and families virtually to deliver the SeriousFun experience safely into the homes of campers everywhere.

Support Campers

You can Keep the Campfires Burning by making a one-time or monthly donation to help support our programs during this crucial time. Your gift also ensures that camps are able to emerge from this crisis and continue to provide programming for years to come!

Camp is More than a Place

Camp looked a little different this year, but our network of camps and staff continued to provide essential connections and deliver joy to kids and families through virtual programming. Our work continues, but we need your help! “For this year, the spirit of camp is basically to have fun and hang in there, stay positive, and try to laugh a lot!” – Hear from camper Liam, in his Localish interview below.

Heart and stars

your support makes a difference

As a result of the anticipated financial impacts of this crisis, camps are in need of donations to fund basic operational costs and keep essential teams intact so when they do emerge from this crisis, they are able to resume on-site programs that are essential to so many children and families. And camps are in need of funding NOW to keep their teams intact as they continue EVERY DAY to deliver the SeriousFun mission to families in new and innovative ways – and as always, free of charge.
