The mission of Camp Quality USA is to establish and sustain nationwide community-based camping experiences and ongoing support programs for children with cancer and their families. More than 10,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year. Countless numbers of families struggle with the physical, emotional and financial drains of such a disease. To make matters worse, the cause of childhood cancer is largely unknown, making successful treatment a challenge, current research necessary and an established support system imperative.

In the USA, there are presently 16 camps established in 12 states. More than 700 children participate in our camps each summer, and many more participate in Camp Quality activities throughout the year. We have one-on-one companions for every camper, and the Heartland Camp is June 13-18th in 2016.
