Camp Quality Ozarks gives kids with cancer a summer camp experience

JOPLIN, Mo. – An organization is giving area kids with cancer a chance to have a summer camp experience at home.

Camp Quality Ozarks is hosting a virtual “Camp-In” with several activities for kids and their families. Normally the camp would be in-person but because of COVID-19 it has gone digital.

Yesterday the organization hosted a camp kickoff, which was in person.

“It’s a lot harder to a week-long virtual camp, but man in the end it’s definitely worth it,” said Executive Director Kirstin Patterson. “Getting to be together for these two hours tonight, we definitely had to take a lot of COVID precautions. But we got that under wraps, and we were so excited to get these two hours together.”

The camp runs all of next week.
