“In our journey as a family through the ups and downs of Katrina’s fight, we’ve met a lot of people and organizations that helped us through some tough times, but I can honestly say none have touched us on such a personal level as the counselors and volunteers of CKAKC. It legitimately felt like a family within an hour of meeting, and the way the kids forged bonds with each other and the volunteers was something that brought a tear to my eye when we picked her up at the end of camp. I had several of the counselors relate to me about what a kind, thoughtful and intelligent kid Katrina is, and hearing that from someone who was a stranger a week before is something that I can honestly say does not happen often. Some organizations just due their diligence and move on, but CKAKC truly made us all feel like we belonged to a very special group of people.”


“Camp has been an amazing experience for our family. It’s wonderful knowing there is a place where all the negativity of her medical issues can be left behind and our whole family can feel normal for a week every year.”


“He had the best time and was so sad to say good-bye to all his new friends. He cannot wait to go back this summer. It was a great opportunity for him to just be a kid again.”


“I enjoyed the fact I knew she was having fun and that would help maybe forget what cancer had done to her, and recognize that he was not the only kid going through cancer.”


“She has told us multiple times that the week at camp ranked right up with her Make-A-Wish trip that we took on a Disney Cruise, even going so far as to ask my wife and me almost daily if there would be another camp this summer!”
