I have been a volunteer for Camp Quality Michigan for 13 years and I look forward to spending time with my camp family any chance I get. I can honestly say that my time at camp has been life changing. Camp has taught me what really matters in life.. not the quantity of years that we are alive, but the QUALITY of life we LIVE. Camp Quality gives kids dealing with cancer a chance to be kids.. a chance to experience things they would otherwise miss out on because of their illness. It is truly a privilege to volunteer for this organization, and as long as my life allows, I will continue this commitment. They are my second family, need I say more? :)

The Great!

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

my personal relationship with campers and their families. Camp Quality is a YEAR ROUND support network to the kids and their families. I've been to birthday parties, hospitals, family functions and sometimes.. sadly.. funerals. It's a family.

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

The friendships I have made both with campers and volunteers. They are truly amazing!

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

the kinds of people you would hope you'd see more of in this world. The kinds of people that I wish I could see more of throughout the year.

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

Afford to build their own camp facility so they didn't have to rely on renting and working around other camps schedules. Open more facilities throughout our nation. Support kids with cancer with personal expenses.

Wow! What an experience to be able to be a worker at " Camp Quality ". I thought that maybe I could be of help in a small way to these kids. However they helped me to be a stronger person just by watching these kids to encourage each other. Some of the activites were very difficult for anyone to complete but watching these kids with cancer reaching the TOP was very rewarding to me and probably would surprise the Doctors and Parents of the cancer. I will be back next year to offer any help that is needed. Grandpa Ted

I have been the camp nurse for the last 3 years and the experience has been AMAZING! It is one of the most rewarding things I have done in my life. There are no words to describe the satisfaction you receive knowing that you have made even a small impact in someones life. The kids have given me more than I could ever give them. YOU SHOULD TRY IT TOO!!

Camp Quality was an amazing, rewarding experience that I will never forget and plan to volunteer again in the future. It was not only extremely well organized but the leaders were very helpful in making sure everything went smooth.

I started volunteering with Camp Quality Michigan in 2007 as a companion at South Camp. I immediately fell in love with the campers, families and staff. Last fall, I took on the position of Camper Recruitment Coordinator for the 2009 camp. I was able to connect with potential campers and their families, while spreading the word about CQ and all it has to offer (free of charge, of course!) Camp Quality is the perfect place for children with cancer to feel like a "normal child" again. They are surrounded by individuals who understand what a child with cancer goes through. Children can attend camp without the fear of being judged, asked personal questions, or stared at, because almost every camper there knows what it is like to experience side effects from treatment. CQ has provided me with memories that will last forever, and I know that wherever I am in my life or career, I will always spend a week of my summer at CQ.

I started volunteering for this organization in 2006- I have not been able to leave yet! My camper and I have become good friends and we talk anywhere from once a week to once a month. Camp Quality allows just what they advertise:kids to be kids again. My camper has made so many strong, lifelong connections to close friends- it is amazing.

CAMP QUALITY IS TRULY AMAZING! This past summer was my first summer involved with Camp Quality, and now I cannot see my summers without it. The people involved with this camp are exceptional. Giving up their time to spend with children in need. Not only are the adults and companions great, but SO ARE THE KIDS! I have never been to a camp when the kids weren't so quick to judge and things weren't all about competition. At most camps, when organized games are played it is all about winning, and being the best. Here it is about trying something new, giving your all, having fun, and supporting each other. The kids here are experiencing something I never did as a teen, SUPPORT FROM MY PEERS! I have also never played a 20 inning baseball game, with 15 kids in the outfield, no score, everyone and anyone rooting you on. My camper has taught me so much about love, life and enjoying it to the fullest. I only hope I have taught my camper as much as she has helped me! I LOVE CAMP QUALITY!

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.

More feedback...

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.
