Help us change the cancer story.
Camp Quality raises funds to ensure the 8,900 kids facing cancer have the chance to just be kids again and create positive memories that change their cancer story. We rely almost entirely on the generosity of everyday Australians, major donors, corporate partners, and trusts and foundations, to help us provide our services and programs free of charge.
Camp Quality provides kids and their families with fun experiences, trusted information, coping tools and a supportive community: in hospital, online, at school and away from it all on camps and at our retreats.
Help us raise funds to support kids and their families facing cancer.
In Hospital: face-to-face support with Family Program Coordinators, Child Life Therapists and our puppets - Kylie, Dean and Melissa - to support kids impacted by cancer.
Camp Quality supports families online with Camp Quality’s Happiness Hub website, Puppet Digital Playdates, Virtual Camps, and New Normal Navigator and Kids’ Guide to Cancer apps.
Away From It All
Camp Quality camps across Australia build life skills and strengthen the wellbeing of kids facing cancer. They give families an opportunity to get away together and make new memories following treatment, and in the case of palliative care or bereavement.
Our Primary School Cancer Education Program travels throughout Australia dispelling myths and creating supportive communities for any child facing cancer. Our special puppet shows bring laughter and positivity to schools and can have a big impact on children’s confidence.
Funds raised from Supper Club will help kids like Elsa.
Elsa was diagnosed with cancer the day after her 5th birthday. Elsa’s little body didn’t tolerate intense chemotherapy and this led to seizures, diabetes, infections and considerable pain over two years of treatment.
Elsa’s dad, Nathan, said: “It was completely overwhelming. We tried to be strong for Elsa’s sake, but we were a mess. That’s when Camp Quality stepped in and helped our whole family – Elsa, her sisters, myself and my wife. They made such a fuss over Elsa and her sisters that they felt like they were the centre of the universe. The camps provided such a welcome distraction. Despite spending so much time in hospital, many of Elsa’s memories from that period actually revolve around the times that she spent with the Camp Quality team.”
