Camp Quality Michigan
April 6, 2013

Camp Quality Michigan has 2 camps (north camp and south camp) where kids with cancer can enjoy life, have fun and make lifelong friendships. During the week long camp where they are paired with a companion they swim, dance, play archery, sing at camp fires, and so all kids of things without having to think about chemo, radiation and everything else that comes with it. Their parents know they are safe and well cared for. Being a companion changes your life, to see how the kids care for each other and the strength they have. CQ is one big family.

Camp Quality Michigan
September 8, 2009

Camp Quality Michigan is an awesome program. I first volunteered as a companion, along with my daughter, in August 2007. The impact on me as a person was tremendous and we have been companions each year afterwards. My family has heard so much about this group my niece volunteered this past year and my brother is planning for next year. To see these kids who have endured so much in their lives, more than any child should, enjoy themselves and have the opportunity to explore their own possibilities like other children is a heartwaring experience. The camaraderie and compassion these kids have towards one another is just one small benefit they receive by attending Camp Quality. As a companion you are a matched up with a camper ( a child who has or has had cancer). You are with that camper all week ensuring a safe funfilled experience. The parents of these children can be assured their precious children will be safe and well cared for. There are nurses and doctors on site 24/7. Lifelong friendships between campers, campers and companions, and between companions are made at Camp Quality. It is one of the BEST non-profit organizations. The worst part of this non-profit is that it is not as well know as others. (e.g. United way) I would like to see more funding for this organization. They are a great group of people working for a great group of kids. It does not stop at camp either. There is a puppet program and other support options for the child and their families.
