25th Anniversary Celebration of Camp Mak-A-Dream

UPDATE:  Due to the ongoing concerns related to COVID-19, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone our 25th Anniversary Celebration to 2021.  Please check back here after the new year for NEW details on what will be our “25th Anniversary Re-Do Celebration” in the fall of 2021.  And, as always, thank you for your unrelenting support of Camp and survivors near & far.  


We are 25 years old!  We need to CELEBRATE!

Join us on October 3, 2020 to celebrate our 25th Anniversary.

We’ll host a grand gala at the Hilton Garden Inn in Missoula, MT on October 3, 2020 starting at 5 p.m.  There will be dinner, dancing, testimonials from campers, a silent auction and more.

Tickets for the event will go on sale August 1, 2020.

Want to help us celebrate?  Buy a ticket to the event.  Can’t join us in Missoula?  Here’s another way you can help celebrate…

We will have an online auction leading up to the big event.  This auction will be available to anyone, anywhere.  Do you have a great idea for an auction item?  In particular, do you have or do you know someone who has an awesome experience to offer up as an auction item in celebration of our 25th?  Examples might include:

  • A weekend away at a cabin, beach house or cool VRBO/Air BnB
  • A spa package… a day of relaxation and rejuvenation
  • An adventure experience… a fishing excursion, a ski day, a day in a vineyard (or vineyards!) including wine tastings & a meal, a yoga retreat, a date night (theater, dinner, concert), etc.!
  • A trip or getaway
  • An outing to a ceramic studio, painting class or other creative workshop

Get imaginative and contact your friends & family to explore options.  We are excited to showcase experiences from throughout the U.S. and Canada given that our campers come from all over the U.S., Canada and beyond.  The only thing we ask of you is to have the value be at least $100 and to fill out this FORM to let us know about the experience for the auction.  You can scan and email the form to Courtney, our event manager, at courtney@campdream.org.

Want to run an idea by someone or have a question?  Please call Courtney or Kim at 406-549-5987.

We may not be able to use every option you identify for our 25th Anniversary (e.g., duplicates), but we are immensely grateful for you helping us to create the most engaging auction ever to benefit Camp and make it possible for us to continue to empower survivors to LIVE WITH, LIVE BEYOND cancer.

Another way you can help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary is to set up your own peer to peer fundraising campaign.  Click HERE to start your personalized campaign.  Need Instructions?  Here they are… Instructions for setting up an Individual Peer to Peer Fundraising Page.


Camp has shown me it's o.k. to be different.

From the outside looking in summer may seem like our busy season, but Camp Mak-A-Dream works its magic year-round. From special projects in preparation for our major fundraising events to hosting educational workshops at our Gold Creek campus, we stay busy regardless of the temperature outside. It just happens to be summertime that we especially look forward to.
