Hole in the Wall Gang Camps were founded by Paul Newman, a Phi Tau alumnus. They provide multiple one-week camping experiences for children who suffer from chronic and terminal illnesses that require around-the-clock care and frequent hospitalizations. The camps provide these experiences free of charge to children’s families and it is only through contributions that the camps are able to continue.

In the last three years, the Delta Omega chapter has contributed more than $5,000.
