Camp Reach for the Sky Sew-a-Thon
We are in our 21st year of providing warm quilts to kids with cancer and their families. Mark your calendar and join us on the 2nd Sunday of each month from 10am - 3pm to help make quilts for these kids. Bring your sewing machine, basic quilting and sewing supplies and together we will make about 450 quilts each year!
Are you a local machine quilter? We need you!
We have delivered HUNDREDS of quilts to kids this year!
We delivered 400 Quilts to three camps.
We have delivered quilts to Balboa Park Day Camp for 4-8-year-old kids who are battling cancer or have battled cancer and their siblings, SIB Camp, brothers and sisters of cancer patients, Oncology Camp - kids who are or have been battling cancer.
We now donate Quilts to Wounded Warrior Foundation West at Camp Pendleton and San Diego Naval Hospital. Because of all our wonderul Volunteers, this is possible!

Note from Robby:
This was a rough weekend for our programs. A young lady by the name of Kevinesha (whom you may have met at Resident Oncology Camp this year) took a severe turn for the worse. As I understand it Kevinesha became a new person after camp this year. Though this was her first year, she made such an impression that it seemed like she had been there for years. In 100+ degree weather, she hauled her quilt around with her all week :) Sure enough at every meal, every activity, and at night in her bunk, she had her quilt. Kevinesha passed away surrounded by her family. That quilt will be a reminder for her parents of one very magical week that Kevinesha had. I just wanted to share this story with you and hope that you will share it with your staff. It has been a rough couple of months in the camper world. All we can do is make the most of the time we have. I'm certain that the camp crew thanked the group, but please thank your staff and volunteers, one more time for me. The work that you do does not go unnoticed.
