Hitw Wish List

Hole in the Wall Camp Wish List

Because the Hole in the Wall Camps want to spend as much of their dollars on programs for the campers, they depend on the generosity of friends and volunteers to provide items from the Wish List. Conducting a Wish List Drive is an alternative to a philanthropy event in which the chapter is only requesting money. Corporate donors or individuals may opt to provide Wish List items as an in-kind donation.

**Before sending any Wish List items, please contact the Phi Kappa Tau Foundation for specific instruction on where to send material:
