Mission Statement/Goal: Uplifting Experiences for Children with Cancer and Serious Illness. Do anything, be anything, achieve everything is our mantra at Camp Quality. We are a national charitable organization devoted to providing free camp experiences and year-round programming for children with cancer and serious illness.
Our six overnight camps in Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario are provided to children ages 7 – 17 affected by cancer and serious illness. The camps are focused on kids building new skills like swimming and hiking, kayaking and storytelling, making friends and gaining memories to last a lifetime. We also provide a leadership development camp called New Heights for teens and an adventure challenge called Breaking Borders that are designed to challenge each young person physically and mentally. Our camps are fuelled by over 450 volunteers who give of their time and talents. These volunteers include our counsellors who ensure campers have fun, our medical practitioners who ensure the safety of each child and the program and camp directors who lead our amazing programming. We are supported by a group of generous corporations, foundations, individuals and service clubs who understand the need and how their gifts ensure our camps remain free, and that through their support each child will increase their self-esteem and their quality of life.
Camp Quality has been supported thousands of children and families in Canada since 1988. We served 371 children and young adults in 2019 with the help of 473 volunteers (and over 100,000 volunteer hours).
