2017 Dick Gillard SQLD 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 SQLD Volunteer of the Year

The winner of our prestigious Dick Gillard SQLD Volunteer of the Year Award is the phenomenal Jeff Brooks!

"Jeff Brooks has been a volunteer with Camp Quality for over 20 years – and has been a Camp Leader on over 45 camps.

Jeff is an outstanding volunteer and we have been very fortunate to have had him as one of our Camp Quality champions. He has given 150% and continues to do so. We often call on him to talk to new volunteers at the volunteer training days as his standard is the standard we hope everyone will strive for. Jeff sees all opportunities as a chance to live life to the full.”the Camp Quality SQLD 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.
