Top (5) Individual Fundraisers:

Pete Grimes $6,205

John Preston – $5,125

Garrett Gunter – $4,041

Matthew Churchman – $3,925

THIS IS SO PHENOMENAL!  Thank you… we are so deeply grateful for your support of Camp and of this event.  It means that we can continue to connect with and provide community, support and hope for cancer survivors near & far.  

For the first time in 19 years, to protect the health of our riders, volunteers and staff, in addition to abiding by the current restrictions in place in the State of Montana, we made the difficult decision that we could not hold RATPOD as a live event.

HOWEVER, we were excited that this now meant RATPOD was UNLIMITED.  On June 20th, we still “rode”.  But participants rode, walked, kayaked, hiked and more… any distance… from all 50 states and 5 continents… all in support of Camp Mak-A-Dream!  It was truly Your RATPOD, Your Way!

THANK YOU to EVERYONE who continues to generously support Camp through registering for this event and fundraising on behalf of Camp.  You. Are. Amazing.

Fundraising prizes will be available at our Foundation office or will be mailed after the conclusion of this virtual event.

On June 20th, from all over the world, we honored those who need us most by riding together…

Questions?  Concerns?  Ideas?  Please email our event manager, Courtney, at courtney@campdream.org.


Camp was an amazing way for me to not only make meaningful friendships strengthened by the common bond of cancer, but also to discover a part of myself that can relate to others in the memory of tragedy.

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.
