Camp Quality believes every Australian child impacted by cancer should have every opportunity to thrive. We do this by providing innovative programs and services to develop life skills and strengthen the wellbeing of children aged 0 – 13 growing up with cancer, and their families. Watch this video to see how we do it.
Helping everywhere we can
When cancer impacts your life it isn’t restricted to a time or 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. Our Kids’ Guide to Cancer app provides children essential information when facing the diagnosis of a loved one.
We provide face to face support in hospitals with Family Liaison Coordinators, Child Life Therapists and our puppets – Kylie, Dean and Melissa to support kids impacted by cancer. Our Beads of Courage program uses unique beads to track each procedure of a child’s cancer experience - such as blood tests, central lines, radiation sessions and surgery; as kids proudly collect beads to tell their own courageous story.
Our Primary School Education puppet show travels throughout Australia dispeling myths and creating supportive communities for any child affected by cancer. Our special puppet shows bring laughter and positivity to schools and can have a big impact on children’s confidence.
Away from it all
For children growing up with cancer, and their families, the routine of hospital and treatment can become all too consuming. Our Kids' Camps and Family Camps provide kids and their families with a vital break to strengthen their wellbeing and boost their support networks. Our Retreats offer families a safe space to relax, unwind and spend quality time away during treatment, in remission, and in the case of bereavement.
