SeriousFun Children's Network

seriousfunlogo-compressorSeriousFun Children’s Network provides a safe summer camp experience for children with serious illnesses and life-threatening conditions. Founded in 1988 by Paul Newman, Ohio ’43, the then-Association of Hole in the Wall Camps was adopted as Phi Kappa Tau’s national philanthropy in 1995. Since then, Phi Kappa Tau members have supported the camps through philanthropy and service.

Philanthropy events such as SeriousFun-A-Thons, basketball tournaments, car shows, bowl-a-thons and haunted houses raise money for various camp needs. Phi Kappa Tau chapters collectively raise and donate approximately $100,000 to the camps each academic year.

Phi Tau members travel to SeriousFun camps throughout the country and overseas to serve as positive male role models. The Phi Kappa Tau Foundation provides up to $300 in travel stipends to any undergraduate who volunteers at a camp.

Volunteers interested in working for one week or more must complete an application and interview. If you are interested in applying, click on the camp link to be directed to the camp website. Applications and specific requirements are available there or can be obtained by contacting the camp directly.
