THUNDER BAY – A day of smiles, team spirit and generous donors and friends.
What a busy day! Allan Dickson was here to photograph us for our yearbook as he has every year. Five teams created cardboard boats, the boats were raced this afternoon and then the crew stayed down at the beach for the afternoon for water fights, tube rides, and relaxing. This evening we had our annual visit from the Harley Owners Group and a scavenger hunt.
Camp Quality Smiles and Friends
We also welcomed generous supporters : the DeBrusks from Mr. Lube , Noni from Helium Highs and Ted, Agnieszka, Ken and Irene from the Royal Canadian Legion #219. These fine folks had fundraisers for us in June and July.The H.O.G. Group also were generous, giving each child a Harley shirt and a generous donation.
We have an early start Wednesday with a stop at Terry Fox, Northern Lights Golf Course and The Complex for a swim and a shower…yes a lonnnnng shower.
I did ask the campers to contribute today and have chosen few comments to share. I think they are having fun parents!

Camp Quality Northwest Blog
This is the second year that NetNewsLedger.com has hosted the Camp Quality Northwest blog. We are pleased to support the work of Clara, the work of Camp Quality, and the ongoing battle to beat cancer. On a personal note, cancer has taken both of my grandparents, it tried to take my mom. There are few people in Northwestern Ontario who are not impacted by cancer. When cancer takes on children, it is time for us all to rally to help them.
Camp Quality will be connected this year by Tbaytel with Internet from East Loon Lake at the Thunder Bay United Church Camp Duncan.
