Camp Good Days was founded over 30 years ago to help improve the quality of life for people whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life challenges. Camp Good Days provides children, adults, and families with summer camping experiences and year-round events and activities to help bring a smile to their faces during difficult times.

Camp Good Days started in 1979 and has grown to become one of the largest organizations of its kind in the country. The organization provides many different programs, free of charge, to those in need. Some of the programs offered include: programs for children touched by cancer or sickle cell, adult oncology programs, family programs, Partners Against Violence Everywhere (PAVE) Initiatives, and brain tumor family retreats.

Many of Camp Good Days’ programs and services have been used as models for cancer treatment centers and organizations throughout the United States and Canada. What began as an attempt to brighten the days of 63 children over 30 years ago is now helping upwards of 1,500 children annually through residential camping experiences at the Camp Good Days and Special Times Recreational Facility on the shores of Keuka Lake.

PUSH Buffalo was founded in 2005, and partners with other local businesses such as Buffalo ReUse, Buffalo Tool Library, West Side Housing, and more.
