Camp Mak-A-Dream

About Us

A wonderful couple dreamed of a place where kids could just be kids – not sick kids. Harry and Sylvia Granader wanted to share their love of Montana adventures and donated 87 acres of their Gold Creek ranch to do so. In 1995 Camp Mak-A-Dream opened its doors to 46 children with cancer for a single camp session. By the next year summer camp sessions increased from one to four. Those adventures continue to this day, providing an inclusive setting for growth during 10 different camp sessions for kids, teens, and young adults as well as 6 retreats for adults, caregivers, and the whole family.


Since opening its doors, Camp Mak-A-Dream has welcomed thousands of participants from across the United States, Canada and several other countries. Camp continues to provide a cost-free, intimate Montana setting for cancer survivors and their families to develop lasting relationships and gain resiliency today. These inclusive programs are the backbone of Camp and intended for everyone regardless of race, religion, age, class, gender identity and/or sexual orientation.
