Why should you support Camp Quality?
Camp Quality gives kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again. Our services and programs are created specifically to support children aged up to 15 years, who are dealing with their own cancer diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum, dad or carer.
Camp Quality provides kids, their siblings and parents, with fun experiences, education, specialised cancer care, counselling and a supportive community; in-hospital, online, at school and away from it all on camps and at our retreats. 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.
Live streamed Puppet Digital Playdates bring the Camp Quality Puppets to children isolated by cancer, on their personal electronic device. The Kids’ Guide to Cancer and New Normal Navigator apps provide cancer education and trusted resources. The Happiness Hub website is home to kids’ activities and wellbeing content; Interactive Virtual Camps allow children to enjoy the camp experience online.
The Camp Quality Puppets provide fun and distraction for kids at their hospital bedsides, which boosts their mental wellbeing. Camp Quality sponsored Child Life Therapists support children undergoing cancer treatment to reduce anxiety and the need for sedation.
The Camp Quality Puppets present the Primary School Cancer Education Program to dispel cancer myths, create an inclusive school community and prevent bullying.
Away from it all
Our Kids’ Camps and Family Camps give children and their families a break from cancer. As do our memorable one-day events, Family Fun Days and Family Experiences. We also provide respite in the most difficult stages of cancer at our Retreats.
