About Camp Quality Canada:

Camp Quality was first established in Australia in 1983 to provide support programs for children with cancer. Five years later, Camp Quality was brought to Canada. Camp Quality Canada (CQ Canada) runs camp programs for children, teenagers and young adults affected by cancer. The charity also runs an education program for Canadian elementary schools.

Camp Quality Canada’s Camp Week program is for children with cancer between the ages of 4 and 18. It runs in six locations across Canada: Alberta, Manitoba, Northern Ontario, Northwestern Ontario, Southern Ontario and Eastern Ontario. Campers stay for one week and are assigned a ‘one-to-one companion’ – a friend for support throughout their time at camp. CQ Canada’s New Heights program is a week-long camp program for teenagers aged 14 to 18 with cancer. The charity labels New Heights as a leadership development program, and 12 teenagers take part per year. Campers build their leadership skills, increase their self-esteem, learn new ways to cope with the effects of cancer, and develop long-term relationships. CQ Canada’s Breaking Borders program is a week-long outdoor adventure camp for young adult cancer survivors aged 18-25. Between all three camp programs, Camp Quality Canada reportedly serves over 350 campers per year. Based on total operating expenses, this translates to $3,375 spent per camper in 2015.

The Puppet Program is CQ Canada’s education program offered to elementary schools across Canada. The Puppet Program teaches kids about childhood cancer and the effects the disease has on patients. The program is at no cost to schools and the charity reports that over 230,000 students are educated annually.
