Camp Quality - North Camp has been a blessing in our sons life. He loves all of the volunteers and friends and is already planning for next year. The camp program has extended itself to us and we get to go on special ski weekend and adventures a couple times a year. Often this get away is the only one we allow for all year. We are so grateful to everyone that donates and volunteers their time to this fantastic organization. My son has been a return camper for the past 6 years and we have never felt disappointed in his experience. Even in his first year, while in the middle of chemotherapy the camp kept him safe and allowed us to have peace of mind, that if only for a week he was going to be a regular kid for a week.

Camp Quality was a wonderful experience that made a difference in the lives of both campers and volunteers. The personal feeling the staff and volunteers are taught to give the campers is like no other volunteer experience I have ever participated in. While the experience was deeply emotional, it was rewarding knowing that I was part of allowing children to be children again.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

In my community there was a young girl who went to camp quality and when she passed away the parents told everyone about the organization and how special it was.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would set aside time in the day when all campers have to participate in one activity sometimes pushing campers into new environments helps them make new friends and try things they wouldn't normally try.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Being able to see how children with cancer have the ability to maintain a positive attitude and enjoy life. I thought this camp did a great job at keeping the kids busy while exposing them to new activities which built up there own self confidence.

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

The staff was very energetic and willing to do anything in order to make the children more at ease and at home. The level of personal attention and interaction was great.

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

Expand the number of children who participate in each camp and do multiple camper reunions throughout the year.

Ways to make it better...

My camper had been away from home before, they got homesick in the beginning of the week.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting the word out. Whether it be on college campuses, hospitals, churches communities not many people know about this.

One thing I'd also say is that...

It was eye opening not only to see how cancer affects children but their entire families. I had a sibling and the sibling needed more attention than the child who was sick.

I was a first time volunteer this summer for Camp Quality and I had so much fun. Everyone was there for the kids and the experience was amazing. The campers have gone through so much at such a young age and truly are miracles. Being able to help provide a week free of cancer for them was an honor. Everyone was so nice and I was able to meet many people. Everyone comes from all over and has different backgrounds but comes together and makes this week possible. I plan to come back again in the future and have recommended it to many others.

Camp Quality was the absolute best week of my summer. It was great to be able to work in the environment that Camp provides for the kids. Everyone says that once you become a part of the CQ family, you can't stop and it's so true!

I first went to Camp Quality when I was 16 in 2008. I had been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in my salivary gland called adenocystic carcinoma when I was 15 in May of 2007. I was in treatment the entire summer, but the following summer was awesome, going to Camp Quality and meeting so many people that I could actually relate to. Going through cancer in the middle of my high school career was very difficult, but I remained friends with many of the people I had been to camp with. Talking to them really helped pull me around and to realize that I wasn't alone. The people who worked so hard to make those 2 weeks possible are truly my heroes and my angels. That one week of freedom from cancer and doctors and hospitals and tests and treatments was truly a God-send. Cancer changed my life forever, in both good and bad ways. Cancer was not good, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. But my response to cancer has transformed my life, and Camp Quality was a very important part of that.

The Great!

I attended camp for 2 years and it is safe to say that Camp Quality changed my life. I plan on being a companion in years to come.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I met people who understood what I was going through, and was able to be normal for a week.

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

the staff are true angels, and my companion, Jammie, will be a friend for life, I am sure.

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

help more kids like me who had no place that felt normal and would be able to be a normal kid for a week.

My first experience with Camp Quality Michigan was as a camper at the age of 8. I had lymphoblastic lymphoma when I was 4, and then after I had gone into remission we heard about this camp for kids who have or have had cancer, and I decided to go. I loved it from my first summer there, and began to look forward to it as the highlight of my summer every year. I continued to return as a camper for 9 more years, until the summer after I was a senior in high school. I took the required one year off, and came back as a companion after my sophomore year of college, and it was one of the best experiences of my life. I have had the same camper for 4 years now (and we plan to hit 5, and then keep going), and it is an amazing experience to get to watch her grow. Camp is one of the few places where I really felt like I fit in, while I was growing up. Although I was young when I had cancer, it still followed me. Everyone got worried about me when they heard that I had it, but there I could go and just be myself. We talked about cancer related things, and it wasn't strange - after all, we had all been through it. I got to experience things I never would have, otherwise. I got to ride an elephant, go up in a hot air balloon, go horse back riding, as well as just be in an environment where I was loved and respected. I'm still good friends with both campers and companions from when I was a camper, and love talking to all the interesting people that I've met. Camp Quality is one of the most wonderful experiences that I have ever had. I'm currently living in Alaska, but still plan to come back to camp - that's how important it is, to me and to all the people that we reach out and are able to help.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that everyone really is there for the campers, and to give them the most amazing experience that they have ever had. They surround the campers with so much love and amazing energy that it is impossible to feel sad.

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

absolutely amazing. Their focus is the children, and how to give them the best experience that they can. They are so focused on how to keep the children engaged and enjoying their time.

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

do so many more amazing things. All of the family events are already amazing, but we could open up so many more things if we just had more money.

This was my first involvement with Camp Quality this last summer. I heard about it through a classmate and decided to volunteer as a companion. I never thought it would have such an effect on me. The kids, the staff and everyone involved, all make this week amazing. I will definitely be back next year and have recruited a friend to help and experience this astonishing organization. My camper and I have been keeping in touch on facebook, but I cannot wait till Oct. 11th for the re-union to see everyone.

I dont believe that enough people know about it

Being a volunteer for Camp Quality has been a huge part of my life for the past 3 years. The smiles, hugs, cheers are abundant all week long! All the support and love don’t end with camp. There’s also tons of other activities all FREE to the kids and their families. I LOVE CAMP QUALITY and what it stands for. The kids are my heroes. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your family.

Camp Quality is an amazing program! My daughter is in remission from Leukemia and has been attending camp at Camp Quality for 6 years now and loves it! I have never met more dedicated individuals as the staff and companions with Camp Quality, their events throughout the year that include the family and allow the siblings to have a fun time is a terrific idea. The individual pairing of each child with a companion is a great idea and my daughter loves to communicate with her companion throughout the year. They now have 2 camps in Michigan which allows more children to attend camp but does make it harder to get space in the family outings. I would highly recommend any parent of a child with cancer to send your child to Camp Quality and rest assured that they are well taken care of and in good hands!

Dedicated and really love what they are doing - they do everything they possibly can to make the children feel special and to let them just be kids for at least 1 week!
