The Painted Turtle seeks to reach beyond illness, to inspire children with life-threatening diseases to become their greater selves. It is our mission to provide a year-round, life-changing environment for these children and their families , one that allows children to participate in an authentic camp experience by supporting their medical needs and offers their families care, education, and respite. This grant was made by the evaluation team from the Fall 2014 UCLA class taught by Judi Smith. The additional funding will support the organization in making fire and safety updates.
