Camp Quality gives kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again. Our services and programs are made specifically to help children 0-13 who are dealing with their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love. 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. 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 Mel. Our Beads of Courage Program at Sydney Children's Hospital uses unique beads to track each procedure of a child’s cancer experience, such as blood tests, central lines, radiation sessions and surgery and kids proudly collect beads that tell their own courageous story.
Our Primary School Education Program travels Australia dispelling myths and creating supportive communities for any child impacted by cancer. Our special puppet shows bring laughter and positivity to schools and can reduce the risk of bullying and exclusion on a child's return to school.
Away from it all
For children growing up with cancer, and their families, the routine of hospital and treatment can become all consuming. Our Kids' Camps and Family Camps provide kids and their families impacted by cancer 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.
