Good Days continues to give back to children experiencing the hardships of
battling cancer at such a young age with their weeklong program simulating a
day camp. Camp Good Days and
Special Times gives the children back their right to a normal childhood by
allowing them giving then access to squirt guns, bounce houses,
gymnastics, baseball, hiking, s’mores and arts and crafts. Sounds like everything you did as a kid, doesn’t it?
Good Days kicks of their Annual Junior Good Days program starting on Tuesday,
August 4th for kids from ages 4-7 who have cancer. Campers will enjoy activities planned at places like The
Buffalo Zoo, Bounce Magic and Darien Lake. Perhaps one of the most cherished locations is the Greater
Buffalo Gymnastics Center. Jaquie
Hirsch, a beautiful and inspiring young lady, unfortunately lost her battle
with cancer last year. Jaquie’s
father is the owner of the gymnastics center, and he has opened the facility for
Camp Good Days and their event this year.
at Camp Good Days are given the chance to enjoy some of the childhood that
cancer has taken away from them,” said Lisa Donato, WNY Regional Director of
Camp Good Days, “Camp allows these children to leave the sterile environment of
the hospital behind them and just have fun with other children who are facing
the same exact challenges. Our devoted staff and volunteers hope to give
these kids the best week of their lives.”
addition to all of the programs that allow the kids to be kids, they will be
participating with peers who share a very special
bond, under the supervision of trained staff and volunteers. Camp is capped off
with an awards ceremony at the end of the week, along with favorite camp songs.
Thanks to Camp Good Days, 44 children from the WNY area will be able to
participate in the Junior Good Days program.
