2017 Dick Gillard VIC winner announced
Every year during National Volunteer Week, Camp Quality honours the incredible efforts and achievements of our Volunteer Family. Without our volunteers, many of our important programs and services simply would not run.
The Dick Gillard Awards recognise excellence in volunteering, and are hard won. The winners display commitment to helping children impacted by cancer, and their families.
2017 Dick Gillard VIC Volunteer of the Year
The winner of our prestigious Dick Gillard VIC Volunteer of the Year Award is the phenomenal Sam Grant!
"Sam Grant has been a volunteer with Camp Quality for over 4 years. Sam always goes above and beyond what’s required. He is the ideal volunteer – he always gets his companions engaged and involved, he knows the rules inside out, and he is always there ready and happy to help out for the kids.
From being an amazing companion, who does incredible work with kids on camps, to bringing a shining light into the office, Sam is an all-round brilliant person who celebrates life and appreciates every moment.
Sam is always there to lend a helping hand, and he brings joy to everyone he speaks with” – the Camp Quality VIC team

Volunteering with Camp Quality is an experience like no other. Volunteers are the heart of Camp Quality, and without their tremendous support, we wouldn't be able to run our innovative programs and services. That's why we love and respect every one of them, and are committed to creating the greatest volunteering experiences possible.
Currently, we have more boy campers (over 50%), than male companions (less than 30%). That means Camp Quality needs more male volunteers, otherwise boys growing up with cancer will start missing out on our important camps. Help us even the playing field.
If you are a male over 18 years old, it’s time to #BroUp - express your interest to be a camp companion today.
