Camp Quality Michigan
September 25, 2009

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.

More feedback

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.
