Camp Quality believes every Australian child impacted by cancer should have every opportunity to thrive. They do this by providing innovative programs and services to develop life skills and strengthen the wellbeing of children aged 0-13 growing up with cancer, and their families.
Camp Quality are there for children and their families from the first experience of cancer through every stage, from treatment to remission and in the case of bereavement – in hospital, at home, at school and away from it all.
Camp Quality teams are located in every state and territory across Australia. With the support of almost 2,000 volunteers, their services reached over 3 in 5 Australian children diagnosed with cancer in 2017. Camp Quality’s goal is to ensure every child impacted by cancer and their family has equal access to their programs and services nationwide.
The Arnott’s Foundation and Camp Quality partnership began in 2008 and was driven by a great synergy with regard to family values.
Since its inception in 2004, The Arnott’s Foundation has raised over $3 million for partner charity, Camp Quality.
The Arnott’s Foundation has nationally supported Camp Quality’s important Family Camp program since 2011. These camps provide families facing childhood cancer the opportunity to spend quality time together and meet other families experiencing a similar journey, in a fun and relaxed environment.
We know from volunteering at these camps that they are a place where supportive relationships flourish, optimism is plentiful and resilience is strengthened.

"We really can’t thank you guys enough for all the good you do and all the happiness and laughter you have brought into our lives. Tuesday this week marked 5 years since Jade was diagnosed. Through that time we have had so many dramas, but CQ have always been there to help put a smile on all our faces and I really think that your motto is true, Laughter is the BEST medicine, so THANK YOU soooooooo much Camp Quality for being a part of Jade’s treatment and helping our family survive the last 5 years."
"The family had a wonderful time at the Blue Mountains Camp. We couldn’t stop talking about it for ages. The timing was superb, as Ashton had only just a week before camp, finished his last round of chemo. So it was a lovely way to take off the stresses of his treatment by going away on a terrific weekend. A big thank you to you and the Camp Quality Team for (as my kids would say) the “awesomist” time away!"
