Boating to Support Local Non-Profit Organizations

Boyne Thunder is focused on making the world a better place and is proud to partner with two incredible local nonprofits that are doing just that. Camp Quality and Challenge Mountain are focused on supporting children with cancer and people with disabilities. We are happy to help them reach their fundraising goals and to support their mission through a fun weekend of boating!

Camp Quality

“Letting Kids With Cancer Be Kids Again”

Boyne Thunder is proud to partner with Camp Quality Michigan, a local non-profit organization that provides year-round support programs and camping experiences for children with cancer and their families. Michigan is ranked 5th in the nation for annual pediatric cancer diagnoses. That is one of the many reasons Camp Quality aims to foster a positive outlook and provide emotional support to children living with cancer by providing them with safe, fun, and empowering environments.

Camp Quality Michigan offers several programs throughout the year, including a week-long summer camp, family camps, and year-round activities. Their summer program features fun activities like swimming, canoeing, and arts and crafts. It also provides children with access to trained medical staff and volunteers who are committed to their physical and emotional well-being.

Their family camps provide the entire family with a weekend of fun and relaxation, where they can connect with others going through similar experiences. They also have year-round activities, including family fun days, outings to sporting events, and other social events that allow families to connect and enjoy each other’s company outside of a hospital setting.

Camp Quality Michigan is entirely volunteer-driven, and all programs and services are free of charge to participating families. They rely on the support of donations, grants, and fundraising events like the Boyne Thunder Poker Run!
