Rally your family, friends and colleagues for an opportunity to “raise a little hell” at the reinvented Camp Challenge! There will be something for everyone as the day combines Camp’s traditional 30-mile scenic bike route and a new 2.5-mile Grit ‘N Wit adventure race. 


Cyclists will ride through the beautiful hills of Northeast Connecticut, where they will find the friendliest, fully staffed rest stops and SAG vehicle support. Teams of 4 are recommended for the Grit ‘N Wit adventure race, a family-friendly competition that will challenge teams’ brains and brawn throughout the course. All are encouraged to join for our one-of-a-kind finish festival with Camp tours, activities, food and live entertainment!


You can build a team or join as an individual, and every dollar you raise helps bring "a different kind of healing" to seriously ill children and their families through The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp's year-round programs. All services are provided free of charge.
