Camp Quality – Let kids with cancer be kids again!

Each year Flint Bowmen supports Camp Quality whose mission is to

“Let kids with cancer be kids again”.    

“Camp Quality USA, Inc. provides year-round support programs for children with cancer and their families. The Camp Quality summer camp allows children with cancer to be children again. The program creates stress-free environments that offer exciting activities, foster new friendships and help give children courage, motivation and emotional strength. There are currently 13 active camps across the United States.”

We offer our support in several ways.  First, Flint Bowmen members host an archery session at Camp Copneconic for Camp Quality where we have dozens of kids, who are fighting for their lives, learn how to shoot bows at 3D targets.  The kids are awesome and have a great time learning to shoot a bow.  Flint Bowmen provides the bows, arrows, targets, and coaches.

Secondly, and here is where YOU can help.  Flint Bowmen hosts a weekend 3D shoot on our outdoor courses to benefit Camp Quality and these kids.  The families who participate in Camp Quality at Camp Copneconic and other locations around the state of Michigan already spend $$$ fighting and it’s with YOUR help and successful fundraisers like our 3D shoot that send those kids to camp with little or no cost and support the efforts of Camp Quality who helps these families all year long.

If you enjoy shooting 3D, want to shoot 3D for the first time (we have bows and arrows available for rent at a very low cost) this is your chance to do it while supporting an awesome cause!  If you don’t want to learn how to shoot or don’t want to shoot a bow <gasp!> you can still help and stop by the club on the weekend of the shoot and make a donation which will go directly to Camp Quality.
