Season for Sharing, Day 1 -- Camp Mak-A-Dream

Every day this week at Wild About Words, I'll share one worthwhile program to support during the holidays . . .


"One week can change a lifetime."

Camp Dream provides a week of FUN for children, teens and adults dealing with cancer. They also have a camp for siblings of ill children.

Campers stay in cabins, enjoy fabulous meals, ride horses, go on field trips, swim, enjoy guest speakers, create masterpieces in the arts and crafts cabin, shoot a round of miniature golf, enjoy archery, climb a rock wall, etc.

How do I know so much about this magical place that's all about friendship and fun instead of pain and suffering?


My dear friend, Cary, told me I had to go. After a couple years of persuasion, I finally went and met the most wonderful women and had the most amazing time. Our family will be supporting Camp Mak-A-Dream this holiday season.

Here's a photo of some of the adult campers, who were dealing with ovarian cancer. We were on a field trip to a beautiful park. Cary is holding up the T-shirt.

Won't you sponsor a camper this year to enjoy Camp Mak-A-Dream in Montana?

What an awesome place. Thank you for your "Season of Sharing!" I think so many of us want to give, but sometimes figuring out who and where can be daunting.
