This was Casey's first go-away camp. We were nervous. Casey was nervous. He just finished radiation, had no hair and felt alone. It took a day or two but he left counting the days to next year! He loved it! As parents, we were relaxed knowing he had his own camp counselor. We would highly recommend Camp Quality!

This was my second year as a companion to a very special little girl named Ragan. We really hit it off last year and I was very excited to spend another week with her this past July. We did a lot of fun activities during the week, but I would dare to say that her favorite might have been making me into a human sundae! We shared a room with Jan and Katie. Early in the week Katie and Ragan made up a password which Jan and I had to remember to re-enter our room. I hope that we will be able to meet again next summer.

Camp Quality Michigan stands up to it's motto and truly allows children affected by cancer stand together with their new friends and forget about cancer all together. Over the span of seven fun-packed days in beautiful Petoskey, MI we become a family and are all connected to someone new in a new and exciting way.

My name is Aaron Milenbaugh and I'm not joking about my rateing. Camp Quality Michigan is like my home away from home. At Camp I did things that I couldn't even think about at my home. At Camp we do alot of fun activites and make friends, we are in the water alot which I like and we dance and everything. I love it there. I hope someone reads this so they can recommend Camp Quality to any kid that has or had cancer so they can come here and find out for themselves. Thank you for reading.

My daughter has gone to Camp for the last 3 yrs. She looks forward to it every yr. They make her feel special. Every time she goes she meets new kids just like her. It's her chance to be free of all her medical problems if only for a little while. She even wants to volunteer when she gets older.

Camp Quality Michigan is a TERRIFIC organization! Each year we have wonderful volunteers (companions and staff members) that come together to deliver a wonderful program to our campers--each of which has, or has had, cancer. What makes CQ unique is the bond that is formed between camper and companion. Each camper is paired on-to-one with a companion that spends the entire week with them. Add in the spectacular programming that is provided and it all adds up to FUN!!!!! I HIGHLY recommend this organization..not only in Michigan but across the US!
