2017 Dick Gillard NNSW 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 NNSW Volunteer of the Year
The winner of our prestigious Dick Gillard NNSW Volunteer of the Year Award is the phenomenal Paul Ueberdiek!
"Paul Ueberdiek has been a volunteer with Camp Quality for over 10 years. Paul is known for his amazing ability to ensure that each one of his companions are always having a blast on camp!
Paul’s laugh is infectious and he can often be seen on Camp with a group of kids merrily following him like the Pied Piper. He has had a huge impact on the families where he has been a companion to their child on Middle Camp. He also stays committed to the children he has been matched up with for the duration of their camp experience until they graduate from Camp Quality programs.” – the Camp Quality NNSW 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.
