We are very excited to welcome Camp Quality again this year as the Official Charity Partner of the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant.
Camp Quality is partnering with the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant to raise funds and awareness for the wonderful work they do to ensure children impacted by cancer can thrive.
ABOUT CAMP QUALITY
Camp Quality gives kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again. Our services and programs are made specifically to help kids aged 0-13 who are dealing with their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum or dad.
We are there for them, through the daily ups and downs of cancer, providing opportunities to laugh, make new friends and have glorious, grubby adventures. And by creating positive memories, Camp Quality helps change the cancer story for kids and their families: in hospital, at home, at school and away from it all.
In hospitals, Camp Quality visits children around the country, providing a friendly face and introducing families to their services. The Camp Quality puppets - Kylie, Mel and Dean - also often join them to ease kids' anxiety, and make them smile. Camp Quality makes around 400 visits to hospitals every year.
In schools, the Camp Quality Primary Schools Education Program puppets visits primary schools and pre-schools of children diagnosed with cancer, and of children who have a diagnosed parent or sibling, free of charge. The puppets talk about the power of positivity, and teach kids about cancer in a way they can comprehend, helping reduce the likelihood of bullying, exclusion and anxiety.
At home, the Camp Quality Kids' Guide to Cancer app contains age-appropriate information about cancer, hospitals, treatment and people who help. They also provide Family Experiences by sharing tickets to events, game or shows, to help families make new memories together.
Away from it all, Camp Quality gives kids and families opportunities to thrive through Kids' Camps, Family Camps and Fun Days. These camps are run in every state and territory, and are full of fun activities to build resilience and life skills. Over 1,000 children impacted by cancer attend Kids' Camps each year, and almost 450 families enjoy the Family Camps.
Camp Quality believes every Australian child impacted by cancer should have every opportunity to thrive. They believe laughter is the best medicine, with the proven principles of positive psychology form the basis for their work.
