Looking to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer? Are you at least 18 years old, fun, energetic and passionate about summer camp? 2015 is going to be the best year yet at Camp Quality Southern Ontario! With planning well underway, we are looking to recruit new volunteers to share this magical, uplifting experience with us this summer.

Camp Quality Southern Ontario is a camp for all young people with cancer aged 4 to 18, to have the opportunity to make new friends, explore nature, try new activities and thrive in an environment where they are not defined by cancer. Volunteers are the backbone of Camp Quality – without them our programs would not be possible. We are looking for volunteers to help us in the following areas: kitchen, maintenance, program, companions and super companions.

Camp Quality has lots of ways for you to become involved! Not only will you be part of changing a child’s life, but volunteering will provide memorable, rewarding experiences for yourself as well!

Our camp week this year is running from August 8 to 15, with a mandatory training day for all new volunteers on June 13. Camp Quality Southern Ontario is located in Grey County, Ontario. We would love to hear from you and have you join the Camp Quality family. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please visit our website and apply today. www.campquality.com. For more info/questions, contact Brooke at brooke.padanyi@campquality.org.
