Camp Quality’s Mini Camps are specially designed to give younger children, who are not quite ready to tackle an overnight stay, their very own ‘camping’ experience.
Held during the day on school holidays or on weekends, Mini Camps let younger children living with cancer laugh and play in a safe and social environment.
Our organised schedule of activities will see children take on physical games, get creative, interact with others and make friends.
Location:Camps are available all over Australia

Camp Quality Graduate
Thank you so much Camp Quality for the past 11 years. Some of my best memories are being on camp. Camp Quality has always been there for me and my family and then to graduate today is amazing.
I thought that everyone put a huge effort in to grad camp so thank you to everyone who helped organised it and the other states. I hope to see lots of you again some day.
Madelyne, Heath’s Grandma
Heath loved it, didn't matter what activity they did, he just loved it. He would talk about it for weeks and weeks and weeks, and he was just always so happy when he came back.
Isn't that marvellous that someone can make another person so happy? It becomes the most important thing in these kids' lives.
Rachael, Leah’s Mum
Leah is shy but Camp Quality built up her confidence when they met us on the ward. Soon she was courageous enough to join the activities by herself and try new things.
I can't explain how important it is just to have somebody like Camp Quality there. I can't really put into words how thankful I am. It's part of treatment. It's part of healing.
Ruth, Harley’s Grandma
Harley just doesn't know how to act around other children. He struggled to make friends. But that changed when Camp Quality came into our lives.
It's great he can go on camp and do skateboarding and soccer and I think he enjoys the male bonding.
My Seth had been absent for a while with all the bullying, appointments and surgery. But today he's back, he's happy and he's confident. My boy is home. I can't thank you enough for giving my boy the most amazing week of his life.
Sheila, Maya’s Mum
After being stuck in hospital for so long, you take any opportunity to see your child happy, like at Camp Quality’s Family Fun Day. Plus - Maya got to see the kids she met in hospital again. They’re her friends now. We’re like one big happy family.
