Camp Mak-A-Dream
Camp Mak-A-Dream
Missoula, MT

Camp Mak-A-Dream was founded in 1991 by Harry and Sylvia Granader, who donated 87 acres of their Montana ranch and seed money to begin construction of a new Camp facility. Harry was involved in building a Ronald McDonald House in their hometown of Detroit, Michigan. When he visited children in the hospital there, he decided he wanted to give them a chance to see a working ranch in Montana. He and Sylvia just happened to own one-the 6C in Gold Creek.

In 1995, after building a coalition of business associates and community volunteers in Missoula, Montana, and raising enough funds to construct the Camp facility on the donated land in Gold Creek, Harry's dream of bringing sick children to see a working Montana ranch became a reality. Camp welcomed 46 kids with cancer that year for a single camp. By 1996, the number of summer Camp sessions increased to four.

Today, with the Mission of providing cost-free Montana experiences, in an intimate community setting for children, teens, young adults, women and families affected by cancer, as well as programs for children who have a sibling or a parent with cancer. Since opening its doors, Camp Mak-A-Dream has welcomed thousands of participants from across the United States, Canada, and several other countries. Another goal of Camp Mak-A-Dream is to provide inclusive programs in a safe and supportive environment for everyone regardless of race, religion, age, class, gender identity and/or sexual orientation.

Harry died in August 2006, but his dream lives on at Camp. Sylvia, who is now in her 90s and although she is no longer making annual trips to Montana to share her talents in the art studio, where she taught weaving to the campers each summer, Camp still holds a very special place in her heart.
