Camp Quality raises funds to ensure the 9,100 kids facing cancer, who are registered for our programs and services, have the chance to create positive memories that change their cancer story. As such, we rely almost entirely on the generosity of everyday Australians, major donors, corporate partners, and trusts and foundations, to help us provide our programs and services free of charge.
