Did you know more than 150 children in Kansas are diagnosed with cancer each year? Camp Quality Kansas 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 Kansas
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 Kansas 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.
2021 Summer CAMP IN
“The question is not how to survive, but how to THRIVE with passion, compassion, humor and style.” – Maya Angelou
At Camp Quality we are exploring “how to thrive” during this summer’s CAMP IN (virtual camp). The Thrive theme will be central to CAMP IN as an important life skill. Each day we will reflect on the attributes that help us thrive – creativity, humor, confidence, gratitude and zest!
Camp will open with a kick-off style event at Tanganika Wildlife Park that families may attend where campers will receive a backpack filled with daily activities and supplies that follow the Thrive theme. There will be an activity cards for each day of camp with art, nature, and self-reflection activities. The supplies campers need to complete each activity will be included in the backpack. Additionally, campers will receive a camp t-shirt and fun items that reflect our camp traditions.
During the week of camp, we will provide interactive virtual camp sessions with live streams via Zoom and videos via Flipgrid.
Camp will conclude with an in-person Campfire Finale for families at Hiawatha Camp.
Registration opens April 1, 2021.
