|On May 15 four of us from Hearthside Quilters made a trip out to Hole in the Wall Camp in Ashford CT|
We delivered 210 pillow cases and 7 quilts. Donna, Holly, Rosann and Jackie went for a trip to the camp.
|While we were there we were given a tour of this wonderful camp. This is a picture of the dining hall.|
Notice all the wall hangings above. Each group of campers create their own sign to hang in the dining hall.
|This is a typical cabin that the kids stay in. There are 2 counselors to 1 camper|
and they stay in the room with the kids. They are with them 24/7.
|This is a "blue cabin". Each cabin has it's own color.|
|Notice that some beds are bunk beds and some low to the floor. When the group|
arrives they determine who will sleep where. Sometimes the counselor might sleep in the bunk
depending on circumstances.
|This chair can open to a bed if needed.|
|A typical scene around the area of the cabins and other buildings.|
|Murals are painted on the high walls in the infirmary. The picture in the center is of dancing bears|
which represents a camp song commonly sung at the camp.
|On one of the smaller walls is this picture of thread.|
I wonder if it's to represent all the quilts and pillow cases that come to the camp.
|In the room the counselors can relax in within the infirmary is a great painting representing all types of |
kids that come to the camp. They have 1100 campers every summer with all types of medical issues.
|The plaque on this rock honors a dignitary from Saudi Arabia. He donated 5 million dollars|
in 1988 to help fund the camp which was build in 9 months.
