  • 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.

  • Seth’s Mum

     

    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.

Recreation

Camp Quality’s Companions and Rovers bring energy, fun and support to our Kids and Family camps.

‘Companions’ act like big brothers or sisters. They are matched with a child/ren to create a super fun and supportive environment for the kids.

‘Rovers’ do just that. They go wherever they’re needed, making sure everything runs smoothly and everyone is having fun.

We ask that Companions and Rovers commit to at least two Rec Programs each year, these can range from a full day activity to a 5 day camp.

Fundraising volunteers are the unsung heroes who make our programs sing.

Fundraising volunteers run and participate in fundraising events, source auction items, sell raffle tickets and generally make sure that laughter is the best medicine.

Anyone can help with our important fundraising. We have activities happening all over Australia, so ask us today about how you can help out.

Medical

The welfare and safety of our children at our camps is paramount. On every Kids Camp we have at least two medical volunteers. If you are a Doctor, Registered Nurse or an Enrolled Nurse who is medication-endorsed and can generously give your time to attend one of our Kid’s camp, we’d love your help. In return, you’ll have a lot of fun.

We ask that Medical Volunteers commit to at least one Rec Program each year. You can also volunteer as Companion or Rover.

Paperwork waits for no-one. The Camp Quality local offices are always looking for administrative support, someone to answer phones, do data entry, filing and everything in between.

If you can commit to helping one day a month during office hours, we’d love to hear from you.
