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!

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.

If there was no bugs and It was for a whole 7 days instead of 5. When I first got there I thought This week would be long expecially with out a phone or elecronics, but It flew on by.

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

I dont believe that enough people know about it

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

I love camp quality

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.

I have worked with Camp Quality South for 2 years now, and I have loved each year for its own special reasons. They have it so organized, and well staffed it makes the week a breeze for the campers and companions! It is an awesome experience, and a very very rewarding one also!

Help so many kids be kids. kids who on a daily basis have to be "grown ups" because of the challanges they face. this one week we volunteer at Camp Quality, is the 1 week out of the year that they get to "be the boss" and just be kids again!

I have a long history with Camp Quality. I attended my first camp in 1989 in Northwest Missouri as a camper. For an 9 year old living with cancer (non-hodgkins lymphoma), the freedoms and opportunities at camp allowed me to be a kid again. No one stared because I was bald or because I had unusual scars. No one treated me like I was fragile. For that week at camp, I was a normal kid doing normal things. I attended Camp Quality for seven years as a camper, then I returned as a companion. I lived in Los Angeles for nine years, where there are no Camp Qualitys. As soon as I found out I was moving to Michigan, I contacted the camp director, Julie, and she let me volunteer for camp. (Thank you, Julie!!) Now that I'm am adult (and a 20 year survivor!), I was still amazed at the feeling of companionship, the strength that comes from five days of letting kids hike, swim, and have campfires and smores. At Camp Quality every feeling is valid; and those living with cancer don't feel weak if they cry or embarrassed if they act goofy or ashamed of their bald head. It's impossible to convey here the effect Camp Quality has had on my life. All I hope is that I can help give other cancer kids what camp gave me.

Being a volunteer the past three years has totally changed my life. Seeing these children fight cancer and knowing how strong they are is truly extraordinary and an inspiration to me. Camp Quality is a place where we can all relax, have fun, forget our sorrows, and share life time memories. Being one on one with a child is a great experience because as a companion I get to build a relationship that will last for years. CQ is a free camp for everyone and is definitely the best experience you will ever have whether you are a companion or camper. Every year is new and exciting and as soon as that week is done, you begin counting down the days until you return in the summer once again.

Meeting amazing people that I know that will be there for years to come. Laughing, crying, and sharing memories will bring you closer than you will ever know.

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

Have its own camp ground site and would not have to have as many donations (although we love them) to send everyone there for free.

Camp Quality is an incredible experience for kids with cancer. It provides a positive, outdoor experience full of action, and joy. Most of the kids and even some of the staff have cancer so they understand what it is like to need a place to escape the stares, questions, worry and hospital smells. A place full of sunshine, the smell of pine, the sound of waves lapping the shore and the constant spilling over of laughter. A place where it's ok to enjoy every moment of a day. A place to stare down cancer, because you can see someone who successfully has at every turn. Camp Quality is a journey that while you're packing your bag to go...you already know it will be wonderful!

The Great!

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

many ways. I've been with parents at funerals when they've said Camp Quality truly made a difference in their whole lives. I've recently been with a mother who said it was the only place she found someone who truly understood her pain.

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

The amazing people who are affilitated with this organization. They truly care...you know because they not only laugh with you, they cry with you.

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

Highly qualified, veteran campers, teachers, crafters that are artists etc.

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

Build their own camp ground and not have to pay thousands of dollars to another camping facility. They could make it more handicap user friendly. They could be first on the list of time slots instead of having to take potluck. They could hire a staff.
