BASE Camp Children's Cancer Foundation, Inc.
June 30, 2010
I began volunteering at BASE Camp in May. I had no idea what to expect, but what I have experienced has been greater than anything I could have ever asked for. While volunteering with BASE Camp I have been able to participate in their weekly hospital visits as well as their monthly overnight camps. I have also gotten to work in their office answering phones, sending out birthday cards, and doing anything else that they need me to do. BASE Camp has given me such a rewarding experience and the people that I have interacted with have been wonderful (both the staff and the program participants). The one thing that amazes me about BASE Camp is their ability to make so much happen with so little funding. They are able to stretch a dollar further than one would think possible! All of their hard work towards making their children feel "normal" has definitely paid off and is visible to any volunteer that walks though BASE Camp's doors.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have seen first-hand the excitement that the children have when they get to go on one of the BASE Camp overnight trips. Their faces literally light up and they get to be a normal kid for a weekend.
