Camp Quality was formed over 30 years ago with the objective of bringing fun, hope and happiness to children (aged 5-16 years) living with cancer.
We deliver high quality recreational activities and camps at no cost to their families. Our programmes are designed to build resilience in the children by creating opportunities for them to learn to live, laugh and enjoy being children in a positive, safe and stress free environment.
Our camps require a significant number of volunteers so that each child is fully supported by a personal companion. Volunteers are aged 18 and over and are trained to ensure that we can deliver only the highest standards of safety and ethical behaviour.
We passionately believe in the power of fun to help the children and their families overcome the challenges that cancer brings. No one can do anything about the quantity of anyone’s life but we can do something about the quality.

Our services are provided thanks to over 750 volunteers who help out every year. Camp Quality is governed by a national Board, and managed throughout the country by five enthusiastic regional teams who run the programmes. The regional teams are headed by a Regional Manager and a support team which includes both medical and health & safety staff. All of these roles are filled on a voluntary basis, but in accordance with strict protocols set at a national level.
