Bouddi Coastal Run is proudly supporting Camp Quality.
Camp Quality gives kids facing cancer the chance to be kids again.
Camp Quality’s services and programs are created specifically to support children aged up to 15 years, who are dealing with their own cancer diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum or dad. Camp Quality provides kids and their families with fun experiences, trusted information, coping tools and a supportive community; in-hospital, online, at school and away from it all on camps and at our retreats.
Camp Quality services and programs help kids and families at every stage of the cancer experience in the following ways:
In hospital: The Camp Quality Puppets provide fun and distraction for kids at their hospital bedsides, which boosts their mental wellbeing. Camp Quality sponsored Child Life Therapists support children undergoing cancer treatment to reduce anxiety and the need for sedation.
Online: Live streamed Puppet Digital Playdates bring the Camp Quality Puppets to children isolated by cancer, on their personal electronic device. The Happiness Hub website is home to our kids’ activities and wellbeing content; the Kids’ Guide to Cancer and New Normal Navigator apps provide cancer education and trusted resources. Interactive Virtual Camps allow children to enjoy the camp experience online.
At school: TheCamp Quality Puppets present the Primary School Cancer Education Program.
Away from it all: Our much-loved Kids’ Camps and Family Camps give children and their families a break from cancer. As do our memorable one-day events, Family Fun Days and Family Experiences. We also provide respite in the most difficult stages of cancer at our Retreats.
Camp Quality raises funds to ensure the 8,900 kids facing cancer, who are registered for our services and programs, have the chance to just be kids again and create positive memories that change their cancer story.
