Wichita, Kan. -- Camp Quality Kansas, a week-long summer camp for children fighting cancer, kicked off the start of camp Sunday evening with their annual duct tape and cardboard boat races.

Each year, the summer camp pairs children ages 4-17 with an adult or companion who will be with the camper throughout the week, while the children enjoy the opportunity to be children.

Shelly Fields says the annual boat race is a trust building exercise for the children. The camp is held each year at Camp Hiawatha and has a full staff of oncology nurses to assist the children.
