Our thanks to Quick Trip for an amazing team of people who probably saved us MONTHS of work! Camp Tallchief and Camp Swannie are both much improved thanks to the generosity and enthusiasm of one amazing company!

All it takes is one day to make a difference.

Camp Tallchief enjoyed some special guests yesterday. Here Beth Burnett of Channel 2 interviews Mike Thornbrugh of Quick Trip.
