What We Do

Camp Quality Heartland provides no-cost, high quality, fun and engaging summer camp, and year-round programs for kids affected by cancer and their siblings. 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.

Camp Quality Heartland has been serving the state of Nebraska for over 25 years, where 70-90 children are diagnosed with cancer annually. Camp Quality Heartland 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.

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 Heartland breaks down those barriers for children and families and restores the childhood experience. They are free to be themselves . . . free to be kids again.
