Camp Make-A-Dream offers a unique escape for children, young adults and families affected by cancer by providing a medically supervised, cost-free, community camp experience in beautiful Montana. Campers at Camp Make-A-Dream can enjoy a week of normalcy and a chance to connect and make new friends with others facing similar challenges. Play a vital role in the camp’s inspiring work as you help to prepare Camp Make-A-Dream for the upcoming season through painting, cleaning, gardening, maintenance and carpentry.


Highlights

• Work behind the scenes to ready the camp to welcome and make a difference in the lives of many sick children and their families during a very difficult time.
• Serve in a capacity best-suited to your ability, be it cleaning, gardening, painting or carpentry.
• In the evening after a day’s work, hear stories of the many lives changed through a week at Camp Make-A-Dream and experience local history and your beautiful surroundings on an excursion to a historic town.

Camp Mak-A-Dream will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary this summer of 2015!
