Did you know more than 35 children in South Dakota are diagnosed with cancer each year? Camp Quality Black Hills is not in the business of finding a cure for cancer, but we are in the business of ensuring that every child who has been diagnosed with cancer can not only have a summer camp experience, but year-round programs to enhance their quality of life and encourage quality family time.
Welcome to Camp Quality Black Hills
When a cancer diagnosis comes to a child, in a lot of ways, childhood stops. Vacations, family time, crafts, and campfires are replaced with doctor visits, chemo, isolation and restrictions. With children’s safety and medical needs forefront, Camp Quality Black Hills breaks down those barriers for children and families and restores the childhood experience. Surrounded by new friends that can relate, loving volunteers who care, and loads of fun experiences, Camp Quality campers find joy, courage and renewed hope for the future. They are free to be themselves . . . free to be kids again.
2022 CAMP IN: June 26 - July 1
We are excited to announce our virtual Summer Camp program.
The week before camp we will deliver to each camper a camp backpack filled with daily activities and supplies that follow the CAMP IN theme. There will be activity cards for each day of camp with art, nature, and self-reflection activities. The items you need to complete each activity will be included in the backpack. Plus, campers will receive a camp t-shirt and fun items that reflect the traditions at our camp.
In addition to the backpacks, our camp staff will provide online camp experiences during the week of camp with live streams and recorded sessions via Zoom Meetings and Flipgrid. A schedule of the online camp activities will be provided in the backpack along with instructions for how to access the session online. We hope you will join us.
