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.
Cancer Society Lions Lodge
The idea of building special accommodation for radiotherapy patients was first proposed in 1965 by Eric Grocott, secretary of the former Waikato Division of the Cancer Society. A year later Lloyd Fraser of the Hamilton Lions Club initiated the project and Lions Clubs of District 202C gave their commitment to raising funds for it.
Diabetes New Zealand
Diabetes is one of the most serious of public health concerns throughout the modern world and if current trends continue those with diabetes will increase dramatically from 240 million to 456 million over the next 20 years (World Health Organisation). Statistics from New Zealand indicate an alarming parallel trend (currently over 225,000 New Zealanders have diabetes and 50 more people are diagnosed every day).
Kidney Kids NZ
Lions Clubs throughout the country regularly collect can tabs, as well as the screw tops off wine bottles, which also contain aluminium and can be recycled in the same way. The tabs are sold to recyclers and the funds raised are passed on to the Kidney Kids Support Group.
NZ Liver Transplant Service
In 1989 the NZ Liver Transplant Service at Auckland Hospital commenced their business, as well as the self-contained three-unit Lions Transplant House accommodation facility for out of Auckland families to be accommodated in, across the road from Auckland Hospital was purchased and opened. These were funded by Lions Clubs and Community of NZ
