Sam’s Story – Camp Quality Volunteer
Camp Quality aims to provide accurate, helpful and trustworthy information for families. Read our publishing standards.
“After my childhood friend died, I decided to become a volunteer for Camp Quality as soon as I was old enough. Attending camps is how I honour her memory and her friendship.” – Sam, Camp Quality volunteer 💛
Sam first heard about Camp Quality when she was 7 and her friend was attending our programs and services, she says, “My friend would always tell me about what a great time she had and come back with the best stories!”.
🏕️ Sam has been volunteering with Camp Quality for 13 years now.
In all this time, her favourite memory is from a recent camp where another long-term volunteer overcame her intense fear of heights, at the request of a Camp Quality kid! “There were tears in my eyes!”, Sam says, “Every time you attend camp you will leave knowing the world is a better place. You get to observe and participate in moments that are so special – whether that is a camper making a new friend, participating in a new activity, overcoming a fear or just having the time of their lives!”.
💛 “It’s no surprise to me that Camp Quality has been around for 40 years! The values that Camp Quality was founded on are timeless, and they are the backbone of every camp and activity.”
