esCarpade 2017

 

DATE: 21st - 28th October 2017

LOCATION: Port Macquarie - Toowoomba

Camp Quality esCarpade is Australia’s happiest and wackiest motoring adventure! The week-long journey is held to raise money to support Aussie kids impacted by cancer.

The event is a culmination of year-long fundraising by teams of entrants (esCarpadians). They spend 12 months decorating their cars (which must be at least 20 years old, i.e. pre-1997) and encouraging people to donate to their fundraising activities.

Each entrant must raise at least $5,000 per car. The money goes directly to Camp Quality and our work to support children impacted by cancer, and their families. This amount doesn’t include additional expenses like accommodation, food or petrol.

esCarpade is a week fuelled by fun, filled with challenges and rewarding experiences. Your driving skills will be put to the test as you tackle dirt roads travelling through unique and picturesque areas of Australia! Along the way you'll pull into towns with a fanfare of sirens, horns, lights and colour. You'll visit local schools with Camp Quality's puppets who perform an interactive show that dispels common myths and misconceptions about cancer.

It’s not a race or a rally. It’s a huge dose of the best medicine: laughter. If you'd like to get involved or want more information, email Susan Fleming at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
