Camp Goodtimes is a very special camp for CancerKids (both past and present). During Melinda's time there, it was held on BC's beautiful Sunshine Coast and the expenses of the entire camp were paid for by corporate sponsors (like the Canadian Cancer Society and BC Tel). A large group of nurses, doctors, and other volunteer staff helped to make certain that everything ran smoothly for the four 1 week sessions. The camp has moved at least 2 times since 1996, but it still runs and is organized in much the same manner as before.

Melinda first attended in 1995, and through sheer determination, managed to attend for the second time in July of 1996. She enjoyed this second visit very much, even though she was quite sick. The on-site staff were really excellent and looked after her very well, making sure that she had a really good time, that she took all of her medicines on time, and that she got most of the few foods that she was still able to eat.

Shown below are a few of the pictures from the second week of the 1996 camp.
