HOW WE HELP PARENTS AND CARERS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER

When a child has a parent or carer diagnosed with cancer, they can sadly miss out on the fun and adventure of being a kid.

We are there for you

Camp Quality has recognised the need to support children (0-15 years) who are dealing with a parent’s or carer’s cancer diagnosis, and give them back some of this precious, carefree time.

We are there these children with our Kids Impacted by a Carer’s Cancer (KICC) Program.

Our free programs and services provide fun experiences, a supportive community, and education and counselling at every step of the cancer experience.

REGISTER TO ACCESS CAMP QUALITY CAMPS AND PROGRAMS

A break from cancer is vital for children impacted by a caregiver’s diagnosis. All kids facing cancer should have the chance to be kids again.

Still have questions about registering? Here’s what you can expect.
