VERA ENTWISTLE

Camp Quality Founder

Vera Entwistle had only recently arrived in Australia from America when she set about trying to help kids going through cancer. She envisaged a world where children who were experiencing cancer didn’t feel so alone; where they were able to create and build lifelong friendships, have fun and explore.

35 years, and many generations on, we continue to honour that intention and to play our part in changing a child’s experience. For us it’s now about any child who is facing cancer: whether that’s they own diagnosis or the diagnosis of someone they love like their brother, sister, mum or dad.

"These children have such a bright outlook on life, despite the fact that they are facing cancer. The sharing was important because it gave them supoort. They often would say 'I thought i was the only one who felt like that'."
