At Camp Quality we are dedicated to bringing fun, hope and happiness to the lives of children aged 5 to 16 living with cancer, their families and communities, through provision of high quality recreational experiences.
Our goal is to provide fun and comradeship combined with achievable challenges to encourage the children to focus on the positive aspects of their lives.
Camp Quality passionately believes in the power of fun to help children and their families overcome the challenges that cancer brings.
Each year we run week long residential programmes in five locations throughout New Zealand. We strive to provide a safe and secure environment involving one-on-one support from Companions and by the provision of committed, well trained staff on all of our camping activities.
We are committed to a high standard of excellence in training our volunteers and in organising our activities.
