With a Dose of Smile Therapy. . .

Camp Quality is a summer camping experience and year-round support program for children with cancer. Many difficult physical and emotional challenges face a child, and his or her family, when battling cancer. At our summer camps we have developed an important type of “therapy” . . . we like to call it Smile Therapy! With a laugh in their hearts and smiles on their faces, Camp Q. Kids find themselves capable of more than they may have dreamed possible.

We Laugh, Love, Lift-up . . .

Camp Quality has built its reputation on personalized care. Every camper is paired with a companion who is dedicated completely to his or her care. Companions are the life-blood of Camp Q; they are fun to be with, adventuresome, great listeners and are always sharing their love for life. Their primary responsibility is to make sure their camper has the most enjoyable, safe, relaxing and restoring experience possible. This relationship creates a beautiful bond that continues long after camp is over, and oftentimes for years to come.

Normal Kids with Extraordinary Lives . . .

Surrounded by new friends that can relate, loving volunteers who care, and loads of fun experiences, Camp Quality campers find joy, new courage and renewed hope for the future. They are free to be themselves . . . free to be kids again.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY at Camp Quality Louisiana

The activities every year are planned by many volunteers in our organization. The 2016 Summer Camp was a big hit for our children, companions, staff and volunteers. Every year Camp Quality needs volunteers to assist. In October, we will be organizing a new Camp Organizing Council for the 2017 year. If you would like to be  part of the planning for the 2017 activities, please send an email to the office (Louisiana@CampQualityUSA.org). The Executive Committee will meet monthly and the Planning Committee will meet every 2 months. You do not need to be in Monroe, LA to serve on the council (we have a teleconference number for those who cannot make it to Monroe).

 

Thank you for serving our children.

 

Alan Barth, Executive Director, Louisiana Camp
