Camp Good Days and Special Times, Inc. is a non-profit organization that provides a camping experience and more for children and adults facing the toughest challenges of life. Children touched by cancer, and other life challenges, gather Camp Good Days’ Recreational Facility located on the shores of Keuka Lake in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region to spark new smiles, re-kindle friendships and enjoy a week where they can simply be kids. The weekend camping programs for men and women with cancer become a place where old bonds are strengthened and new ones created. It is a place where smiles are the norm and hugs mandatory, a place where visions are born and dreams discovered, a place where courage knows no boundaries. It is Camp Good Days and Special Times.

Campers have a chance to experience all the traditional camping activities such as hiking, sailing, fishing and arts & crafts at our Keuka Lake facility. Camp also features a Project Adventure ropes course, an accessible swimming pool, miniature golf course, areas for music, nature and computers.

Camp Good Days provides programs and services to improve the quality of life for children and families whose lives have been touched by cancer and other life challenges.

Often when people are faced with situations that will have a deep impact on their lives, they seek out others who are facing the same challenges. Camp Good Days is there to help people through the difficult times.
