Camp Quality creating a better life for every child in Australia with Cancer

 

Camp Quality

Some people are just amazing.  Those who take a vision and see it through and do something pretty outstanding with their lives. Like Vera Entwhistle who in 1983 started living her vision of creating a camp for children living with cancer. Somewhere for them to enjoy the recreational activities that they have probably missed out on through their illness.  That was 1983. Now there are 13 offices in every state and territory and they run over 240 camps and fun days and they perform to over 250,000 school children each year.  amazing.

 

The Camp Quality purpose is to provide a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia
