I began volunteering at BASE Camp in May. I had no idea what to expect, but what I have experienced has been greater than anything I could have ever asked for. While volunteering with BASE Camp I have been able to participate in their weekly hospital visits as well as their monthly overnight camps. I have also gotten to work in their office answering phones, sending out birthday cards, and doing anything else that they need me to do. BASE Camp has given me such a rewarding experience and the people that I have interacted with have been wonderful (both the staff and the program participants). The one thing that amazes me about BASE Camp is their ability to make so much happen with so little funding. They are able to stretch a dollar further than one would think possible! All of their hard work towards making their children feel "normal" has definitely paid off and is visible to any volunteer that walks though BASE Camp's doors.

The Great!

I have seen first-hand the excitement that the children have when they get to go on one of the BASE Camp overnight trips. Their faces literally light up and they get to be a normal kid for a weekend.

I began volunteering with BASE Camp in my last year of law school as a pro-bono requirement to graduate. Truth be told, I was most likely only going to grab my requisite hours and move on. However, for a time after my hours were complete until my life shut down to study for the bar exam, i continued to participate with BASE Camp because of the great program that was run by the directors. The incredibly selfless actions, along with the generosity of both the organization and the fellow volunteers was too much not to be a part of. I now consider myself a full time volunteer and a part of the team. The value of the experience is immeasurable and the value of the help BASE Camp offers to the children and families stricken with cancer is also immeasurable.

I started at BASE Camp as a kid. I had leukemia at 15 years old. I went to their outtings and events. I had such a great time there. It helped me to get away from the reality of all the treatments and medicines I was going through. I remember going and seeing all these other kids younger and older dealing with the same issues i was. I remember being able to take my hat off because I was not the only one without hair due to the medicine we were taking. It gave me something to look forward to and helped with my confidence level. I am a volunteer there now. I know my main goal while im there, is to make each kid smile. We have so much fun between the pool, contests, games, and just pure fun. These kids have a chance to experience all the joy i did and would have missed, if it wasnt for BASE Camp. Thanks so much BASE Camp.

I was a kid with cancer at 15 yrs old. I had such a great time with this orginization. I know if it had not been for them i would have been very depressed through my treatments

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Awesome. Terry and Cindy are absolute Dolls. The kids are a riot. They have fun there as if they were not sick at all.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

DO so much more. They would be an inspiration to all orginizations for kids. The volunteers have hearts of gold and think of nothing but for those kids. I believe they would create a daily camp instead of monthly. I believe that would be so awesome.

I have worked over the past twelve years with the leadership and staff of BASE Camp CCF in special events for families challenged with cancer and other blood diseases and can testify to the genuine concern and care given to patients and their families. BASE Camp offers a full spectrum of programs providing care at all stages of the patient's illness.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

remarkable and rememberable because of their all-giving attitude and work. Every staff member and volunteer jumps at the opportunity to make a family's devastating situation a positive, real and fun experience, i.e. after chemo party.
