West Aussies pitch their tents for kids facing cancer

Tents will soon be springing up in bedrooms, living rooms, and backyards across WA as leading children’s cancer charity Camp Quality launches its innovative ‘Camp In’ for kids facing cancer.

Registrations are now open for the first-ever ‘Camp Quality’s Camp In’ on Saturday 4 July, an ideal ‘at home’ activity with an important cause: to change the cancer story for kids and their families.

Funds raised will help Camp Quality support kids and their families facing cancer with services and programs in hospital, at school, at home and away from it all such as Kids’ Camps, Family Camps, Family Fun Days, the Camp Quality Puppet Program, Retreats, educational apps and online resources.

Isolation has given us all a small taste of what kids facing cancer live with every day due to their supressed immune systems.

Camp Quality’s Camp In is a great, fun way to get the whole family involved in raising funds so kids facing cancer get the chance to be kids again.

Camp in for Camp Quality is proudly supported by ALDI and the first 1,000 participants who fundraise $100 will receive a $20 ALDI voucher to shop for their Camp In Survival Pack.

CEO Deborah Thomas said now more than ever these kids need our help.

“Cancer doesn’t stop for COVID-19 so neither can we,” said Ms Thomas.

“Over 7,000 Camp Quality kids are now waiting for the fun and safety of a Camp Quality program. We are currently getting ready to restart our Camps and Family Fun Days to help our kids impacted by cancer, relieve the stress and anxiety of this heightened level of isolation.”
