What has been said about Camp Quality ….
It has been a great pleasure for me to serve as the medical director for Camp Quality New Jersey for the past 2 summers. In my year-round work as a pediatric oncologist, I know too well how many things our kids miss out on during the year-things other families take for granted, like school, sports, and hanging out with friends. Treating cancer becomes the focus for the entire family for an extended period of time.
Camp Quality gives our kids the opportunity to just have fun for a week every summer. Each child is paired with a companion for the week whose role is to make the week memorable for that particular child, so he or she can enjoy and participate to the fullest. The relationships that quickly develop between campers and companions and throughout the camp community provide an outstanding way to build emotional strength for our kids. They leave camp, at the end of week that passes too fast, with renewed self-confidence and skills that will help them back at home.
Dedicated volunteers work all year round to make the week of Camp Quality possible each summer. We are grateful to the support of the community that allows us to fulfill our mission, “Letting Kids With Cancer Be Kids Again.”

As a companion volunteer, Camp Quality New Jersey provided me an opportunity to give back and bring a smile to a child’s face. I often refer to Camp Quality as the hidden jewel of New Jersey when it comes to an organization which provides a free and exciting camping experience for children with cancer. Each day spent at camp was truly rewarding and unforgettable.

I just wanted you to know that George had a terrific time at the Teen Winter weekend. It was good for George because since his diagnosis in 1997 we (meaning George & I) have not been separated at all. He and I have been a 24-7 thing up until Summer Camp. It was nice to see him get a chance to be a kid like everyone else and mom not there.

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful time that Claire had at Camp Quality at the end of June. Not a day goes by where she doesn’t talk about something that happened there or someone she met there, and she is already talking about what she’ll do there next year! I still can’t believe that a 6 year old went off so easily – your selection of Melissa as a companion was ideal!

I am still in complete awe at the sincere good-heartedness of the staff at Camp Quality. I look up to you all and hope to be like you guys some day. I can’t even imagine how much work you put into all this, but I can for sure tell you that your effort has created something great. I know that I don’t need to tell you this, but the kids were AWESOME. How did such a sweet, funny, kind group of kids end up all together at a camp for kids with cancer? Again, I am still in awe.
I’m so glad that I can be a part of Camp Quality, and I can’t wait until the reunion in November.
