Greetings from Camp Quality Heartland – the world’s greatest summer camp!
It was a busy year and we have so much appreciation to share! We were blessed to host 64 children for five days of summer camp and we are proud to say it was completely free to everyone. Your support allowed each family to focus on other, more important needs. Camp Quality Heartland is unbelievably lucky to be a part of the Omaha community – one filled with truly special people!
We have so many positive stories from this year. Camp grew in 2015, reaching 10 new families and expanding summer camp enrollment for the second year in a row. Camp was fortunate to welcome new survivors, including 17 first-time campers. A big part of this growth is because of the dedicated teams at Childrens Hospital, the Nebraska Medical Center, and many other community partners. They helped us reach new families in 2015.
Do you know a family who Camp could support? Help us connect with them!
This summer we were proud to see children graduating from summer camp. Our brief time together reminds us of the real reasons we do this work. We’re allowed a very small window to see the kids grow, conquer their challenges, and mature into the most exceptional young adults. We love our jobs! One of most inspiring things we heard this summer...
“I want to come back as a volunteer next year!” –graduating campers
The world’s greatest summer camp could not exist without the world’s greatest volunteers! All backgrounds, ages, and abilities are welcome with our organization. This year’s supporters included an inspiring team of high school DECA leaders, a caring group of motorcyclists, and an army of college students. We couldn’t be more grateful for their work in 2015. Everyone did an outstanding job and we loved watching new leaders emerge!
Camp Quality Heartland needs your help. We dream for all Omaha-area families affected by a diagnosis of childhood cancer to attend summer camp without the additional financial burden of expensive camp fees. With the help of caring and generous people like you, we can continue to offer our life changing services completely free to local families. Camp Quality Heartland is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with zero paid staff, devoting all of our resources to make an impact in the lives of our campers. All contributions are tax deductible.

Most importantly, we have exciting news! Camp will be at the College World Series in 2016!! We will be making our 22nd year incredibly special by planning a summer camp wrap up at the Omaha Baseball Village on opening night of the College World Series! This is going to be the biggest Camp ever! It’s going to be a game-changer. Look for future updates in your mailbox, our website, social media pages, and your email inboxes.
Wishing you and your families a grand slam in 2016!
