History of Camp Goodtimes
Since 1985, Camp Goodtimes has been committed to providing a camping experience for children affected by cancer. Camp has grown from assisting 25 children in our first year, to providing a supportive and fun camping experience for almost 600 children and family members each year.
We are proud to have been able to and continue to provide summers of joy, confidence, support, and hope for these children and their families.
Camp Goodtimes is appreciated and cared about by campers and their families alike, but part of what makes each camper’s experience so wonderful is the program’s ability to allow these children to gradually come to accept the differences that might exist for them due to cancer.
It is our hope that each camper comes to accept who they are and graduate toward all the varied experiences they can enjoy with peers from school, their community, and whichever social groups they become a part of.
Whether it is in residential summer camping or other activities in the community, we know that they will continue to be a successful person and will carry the lessons and memories Camp Goodtimes has provided.
