Camp Good Days and Special Times, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, adults and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life threatening challenges, was founded by Gary Mervis in 1979, following the diagnosis of his youngest daughter, Teddi, with a malignant brain tumor.  What was started to provide Teddi and 62 other children with cancer (21 from Rochester, 21 from Buffalo, 21 from Syracuse) with a residential camping experience has grown to become one of the largest organizations of its kind, having served as model for other organizations and cancer treatment centers around the world.

Providing residential camping programs and year-round recreational and support activities and events, Camp Good Days has served more than 43,000 campers from 22 states and 27 foreign countries.  For more information about the many programs and services provided by Camp Good Days, to learn about volunteer opportunities, or to make a tax deductible donation, please call Camp Good Days at 585-624-5555 or check out www.campgooddays.org.
