2017 Dick Gillard ACT winner announced

Every year during National Volunteer Week, Camp Quality honours the incredible efforts and achievements of our Volunteer Family. Without our volunteers, many of our important programs and services simply would not run.

The Dick Gillard Awards recognise excellence in volunteering, and are hard won. The winners display commitment to helping children impacted by cancer, and their families.

2017 Dick Gillard ACT Volunteer of the Year

The winner of our prestigious Dick Gillard ACT Volunteer of the Year Award is the phenomenal Emily Capper!

"Emily Capper has been a volunteer with Camp Quality for over 6 years. Emily approaches life full of energy and brings this energy to all her interactions with Camp Quality and this is apparent in the way she talks about both Camp Quality, professional and personal life. During Camp Emily is committed to ensuring new volunteers, are acknowledged for their efforts on camp and ensures they are supported throughout the camp.

Emily’s dedication to Camp Quality has seen her progress to a Camp Leader and given the opportunity to lead her very first kid’s camps, Emily has ensured that the themes are fun, colour and suitable for all those involved. The passion that Emily brings to both the office and camp, is something that cannot be taught.” – the Camp Quality ACT team

Volunteering with Camp Quality is an experience like no other. Volunteers are the heart of Camp Quality, and without their tremendous support, we wouldn't be able to run our innovative programs and services. That's why we love and respect every one of them, and are committed to creating the greatest volunteering experiences possible.

Currently, we have more boy campers (over 50%), than male companions (less than 30%). That means Camp Quality needs more male volunteers, otherwise boys growing up with cancer will start missing out on our important camps. Help us even the playing field.

If you are a male over 18 years old, it’s time to #BroUp - express your interest to be a camp companion today.
