Camp Mak-A-Dream was founded in 1991 by Harry and Sylvia Granader, who donated 87 acres of their Western Montana ranch and seed money to begin construction of the camp facility. The camp was created to carry out the mission of providing a medically-supervised, cost-free Montana experience, in an intimate community setting, for children, young adults, and families affected by cancer.
The first camp was held in the summer of 1995 with a group of 46 children with cancer. In 1996, the number of summer sessions increased to four, and now offers programs year-round. Since opening its doors, Camp Mak-A-Dream has welcomed more than 3,400 participants from across the United States; plus Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Peru, and Chile.
