Camp Quality Michigan
October 2, 2009

My daughter has attended Camp Quality Michigan for two years. She absolutely LOVES the experience and has grown so much each time she attends for just one week. She has made long lasting friendships with her companion, a volunteer. She also has made a lifelong buddy with her roommate and her roommate's companion. The opportunities that the kids at Camp Quality Michigan allow them to be kids first and foremost regardless of what cancer they had/have or where they are in treatment. It's a way to connect and be a carefree kid having fun for one week each year.

The Great!

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

watching my daughter mature and gain confidence. She's also learned to accommodate others who need more time or help to do things because of their personal limitations.

Ways to make it better...

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

give them more resources and more man power to do more.

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

that it makes the camper and their entire family feel like one big family. Everytime I think about my daughter's camp experience, I get a lump in my throat and tear up. It's really more than just camp for my daughter.

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

unbelievable. They put the kids first and make sure everything is fun and enjoyable. They know all the kids by name almost instantly and keep in touch too.

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

change the world. Seriously, the families that could benefit from having their child have a camp experience with Camp Quality Michigan would benefit immensely!

Ways to make it better...

the camp was actually one day longer to get the kids to be able to do more that they want to!

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

the limitations that they have in serving a limited number of children. The camp is small (60 kids total?) and the experience could benefit so many more.

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

Camp Quality is really a highlight of my daughter's summer.
