Camp Quality Greater Kansas City is a local chapter of a nationwide non-profit organization that serves children with cancer and their families by providing year-round programs, experiences, and companionship, at no cost to the families we serve. Camp Quality promotes hope and inspiration while helping children foster life skills and develop their full potential. Our signature event is the week-long summer camping experience where every camper is paired with a volunteer companion who is dedicated completely to his or her care. Individual relationships and 1:1 pairing of campers and companions makes Camp Quality unique. Each volunteer is trained so they can fulfill their primary responsibility of making sure the campers have the most enjoyable, safe, relaxing, and restoring experience possible. Oftentimes, this relationship creates a bond that continues long after camp is over, even in the years to come. Camp Quality utilizes volunteers in other areas too such as crafts, fishing, and programs; Camp Quality provides an on-site medical staff of professional nurses day and night throughout the week of camp who communicate directly with the on-call physician who oversees the camp. You can find Camp Quality participants enjoying a variety of activities such as swimming, fishing, boating, making crafts, making jewelry, playing games, making s’mores and enjoying campfire stories, or marveling at a special guest entertainer. Participants also enjoy a dance and a talent show each year. Camp Quality is truly a place where kids with cancer can be kids again.
