Our History

Camp Quality held its first camp in Auckland in 1985 - attended by 22 children from throughout the country. Since then Camp Quality has grown and now provides camps and recreational activities in five regions from the far North to the deep South, for more than 300 children and young people each year. Today Camp Quality is the only organisation providing camps for children living with cancer. The hot air balloon in our logo symbolises the ability to rise above life's challenges.

“No one can do anything about the quantity of anyone’s life, but all of us can do something about the quality.” 

Vera Entwistle, Founder of Camp Quality
