Why should you support
Camp Quality gives kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again. Our services and programs are made specifically to help kids aged 0-13 who are dealing with their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum or dad.
We are there for them, through the daily ups and downs of cancer, providing opportunities to laugh, make new friends and have glorious, grubby adventures. And by creating positive memories, Camp Quality helps change the cancer story for kids and their families: in hospital, at home, at school and away from it all. Watch this video to see how we do it.
Helping everywhere we can
When cancer impacts your life it isn’t restricted to one time and place. That’s why we provide support in four different areas of life.
Cancer impacts families financially as well as emotionally. Family fun days and Family Experiences give families the chance to reconnect and create memories outside of hospital. Outings like sporting events, the zoo or concerts give children and families a chance to spend time together and have fun.
We provide face to face support in hospitals with Family Liaison Coordinators, Child Life Therapists and our puppets – Kylie Dean and Mel to support kids impacted by cancer.
Our travelling puppet show for primary schools answers all the difficult questions kids have about cancer, dispels common myths and teaches students how to be supportive and understanding of kids impacted by cancer – all of which prevents bullying and exclusion.
Away from it all
We offer a variety of camps for families and kids of different ages all packed full of fun activities. We also organise retreats allowing families to get away from it all and spend quality time together. Kids’ Camps and Family Camps across Australia build life skills and strengthen the wellbeing of kids impacted by cancer, and their families. Our Retreats are an opportunity for families to get away together and make new memories following treatment, and in the case of palliative care or bereavement.
