Camp Quality helps and supports kids living with cancer, and their families, as they navigate the difficult path of this disease. The support can be in the form of financial aid, a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, or an ear to listen, plus programs that build resilience and optimism and provides an essential break from the stress and intensity of the cancer journey.
