About Camp Quality:

Founded in 1988, Camp Quality Canada (CQ) provides camp experiences to kids with cancer and their siblings. During cancer treatment, kids miss out on learning, exploring, and playing. While CQ is unable to increase quantity of life, it works to improve the quality of life of kids with cancer. Camp Quality Canada is a branch of the international Camp Quality family.

CQ’s summer camps run for one week per year at six locations across Canada. Every camper is matched with a trained, adult volunteer. Campers and their companions participate in activities, including swimming, hiking, canoeing, and archery. CQ works with a medical team to ensure that a registered nurse or doctor is always on site. There is one medical professional per 15 campers. For youth aged 14-18, New Heights is a week of camp designed to promote leadership. Breaking Borders is open to 14 cancer survivors aged 18-25 who arrange an outdoor adventure for themselves. In past years, Breaking Borders trips have included sea kayaking in New Brunswick, sailing in Georgian Bay, and exploring British Columbia. Each year, over 350 children and young adults participate in CQ camps.

CQ also has puppet shows which visit elementary schools to teach kids the importance of caring for one another and how to treat kids with major illnesses. The shows are presented to approximately 23,000 students each year.
