Each year over 18,000 children in the US are diagnosed with cancer. Camp Goodtimes West was established in 1984 to provide a no cost camp environment for children affected by cancer where they can recapture the joys of childhood.
For 30 years, Camp Goodtimes has welcomed over 240 campers a year from Alaska and Western Washington for two weeks of traditional summer camp, and a weeklong kayak trip.

Camp Goodtimes was supported by a large national organization for the past 30 years. That funding was recently eliminated, and camp was at-risk of closure. Volunteers stepped in to create The Goodtimes Project, and keep camp thriving this year and into the future.
Each year it costs $400,000 to operate camp; so far we have raised $225,000. We need your help. Help us get kids out of the hospital and into the great outdoors.
