Camp Good Days Digging Out Instead of Comforting Sick and Dying Children, Families
Camp Good Days and Special Times in the Finger Lakes is having to cancel weeks of planned activities due to flooding.
The Penn Yan camp normally spends late spring and summer helping children and families have a good time, as they're dealing with cancer diagnoses, other illness or loss. But flooding forced debris into many of their cabins, covering much of the grounds. Regional Director Claire McKenney says at least one cabin is a total loss.

The camp is now hosting up to 70 volunteers a day, cleaning out debris from buildings and starting to reconstruct others. The are in need of material help as well, seeking:
- Donated building materials
- Volunteer Time, especially form those with construction, carpentry skills
- Monetary donations
- Gift cards or food donations to help feed volunteers.
