Camp Good Days


The mission of the Camp Good Days and Special Times International Program is to host children with cancer or sickle cell anemia from around the world and provide them with the opportunity to be with other children who truly understand their challenges related to this disease.

The year was 1989, Cindy Williams, a Director of the Cancer Society and a four time cancer survivor was in charge of the Ministry of Tourism Peoples to People Program. Proud to be a survivor, she never missed an opportunity to tell the public about it.

In the course of her work, she met Skip Debiase, a founding member of Camp Good Days and Special Times, and from that encounter a far reaching relationship was born and by extension, included the Cancer Society.

In the summer of that same year, Cindy and a young cancer survivor was invited to attend Camp. Every year since, the Cancer Society sponsors two young Bahamian cancer survivors between the ages of 8-17 years and their Cancer Society chaperones to travel to Rochester, New York as guests of the Camp for twelve days.

This has continued as Cindy William’s legacy since her death in 1992.

Continue to support the fight by financially sponsoring a child with cancer to attend Camp to make something positive out of the devastation of childhood cancer.
