About Barretstown

Barretstown was founded by Hollywood actor Paul Newman in 1994 and modelled on his renowned Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut, USA. It serves children affected by serious illnesses – primarily cancer and serious blood diseases and their families.  Barretstown’s mission is to rebuild the lives of these children and their families. We believe that every child with serious illness should enjoy their childhood. All of the children and families come to Barretstown free of charge. Services are provided entirely free of charge to the families who attend, so donations and fundraising efforts are vital for the charity to help more sick children experience the magic of Barretstown each year. Barretstown is supported by donations and the fundraising efforts of corporate supporters, individuals and community groups. For more information see
