... MORE THAN CAMPS
At Camp Quality, we’re famous for our camps. They even feature in our name (in case you hadn’t noticed!) We’re very proud of our camps – they remain a huge part of our essential programs for children living with cancer and their families. From camps just for kids through to camps for the whole family, this healing time away provides a valuable break from hospitals, stress and intensity. Camp activities focus on building optimism, resilience and confidence. We’ve grown over the last 29 years. We’re now about so much more than our camps. Our programs support families throughout their child’s cancer journey – in hospital, at home, at school – and away from it all. And sometimes, as you’ll read, even at the mechanics shop. In response to the identified needs of families, our support comes in all shapes and forms. Just take a look over the next few pages.
You’ll be surprised to see that we are more than just camps!

The side effects of brain tumour treatment can be confronting and traumatic. CJ, 11, sometimes sleeps for 19 hours a day. We don’t want CJ to miss out on five minutes of childhood so we’ve been there for CJ – in hospital, at home, at school and at our camps. Our Primary School Education Program, which promotes anti-bullying behaviour and boosts the confidence of children living with cancer, visited CJ during her long hospital stays. “The puppets gave me a hard time, which CJ found very amusing!” her dad Neil says. The puppets also visited CJ’s school. Neil says: “It was a huge help for CJ’s 600 peers to understand about her hair loss and tiredness.” At Family Camp Neil says “The ability to take a moment out of the treatment cycle, relax for a weekend and share our journey with other families was amazing. The positivity and self esteem that CJ gains is brilliant. In fact, CJ’s on camp right now – giving her back the chance to just be a kid again.” - CJ, Camp Quality all-round star - Warwick, Queensland

Play Therapists, like Kylie, teach children living with cancer innovative coping strategies to use within and outside hospital. Children are often terrified of cancer treatments: chemotherapy, sharp needles, large pills, isolation units, lying still – all completely counter-intuitive to just being a child. A Play Therapist uses play to demystify the treatment journey. Sophisticated distraction techniques minimise the distress, pain, anxiety and trauma of cancer treatment. Results are staggering. Kylie’s creative techniques enabled a three-year-old boy to lie completely still whilst radiation treatment was administered – without general anaesthetic. This saved the family and doctors a full day of hospital time; the procedure took one hour instead of six. We currently fund Hospital Play Specialists at hospitals in Sydney, Newcastle and Victoria. Our goal is to have Hospital Play Specialists at every oncology ward in Australia. - Kylie, wonder woman and Play Therapist at Sydney Children’s Hospital, funded by Camp Quality - Sydney, New South Wales

The Eggleston family is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to creating a better life for children living with cancer. Both Richard Eggleston and his dad Graeme have been tireless and formidable fundraisers for Camp Quality – and they live and breathe our ethos of “creating a better life”. Richard creates a better life for himself through his fundraising and he’s done it through running; he joined the Orange Runners’ Club and shed 50kg in weight, down from 137kg – all thanks to his jogging. It started with running the City2Surf, and Richard has now built his skill level up to marathon distance. Richard says: “I’m living proof that despite where you are now, things can always get better.” Richard’s dad Graeme runs one of our quirkiest fundraising events: the Tractor Trek, through the Orange Support Group - where locals work together to share fundraising ideas and contacts. In 2012 Tractor Trek raised $92,946, enough to create a better life for another 96 children at our resilience-building programs. - Richard, fundraiser extraordinaire - Orange, New South Wales

“My five-year-old daughter Ella was diagnosed with leukaemia in 2009. She relapsed in December 2012. She’s still on treatment. When times got tough, Camp Quality assisted us financially. Whilst I was a single parent (Kerryn lost her husband to cancer), they bought us food and fuel vouchers. They provide us with a free car space at the hospital, making visits so much more affordable. They also support us on a very personal level - we have an awesome relationship with the Hobart team. Popping in for a cuppa, play and debrief really lightens the load. Never underestimate the power of friendship. The biggest thing we love is the relationship building with other families. My mum (Ella’s grandma) comes to Family Camp. She lived Ella’s journey too, so Camp Quality supported her. Sharing journeys with adults while kids can just be kids returned some normality to our lives.” - Kerryn, a very grateful mum - Hobart, Tasmania

“I visit schools with the McDonald's Camp Quality Puppets, a cancer education program that helps children to be supportive and understanding of others with cancer. For me, seeing the puppets transform a scared, shy child (with cancer) into a confident, smiling kid makes me marvel at the power of a couple of puppets. I love using my experience as a performer to help others (Jason was in pop group Scandal’us, winners of the Australian Popstars). Although puppetry is a barrel of laughs, the power of Camp Quality’s Primary School Program is undeniable. Every school has children living with all kinds of differences. The show’s anti-bullying messages are universal. My highlight was when a boy stood up during our Q&A session and asked if he could come to the front and take off his beanie revealing his bald head. He was beaming with confidence and made a moving speech about his adventures with Camp Quality. He completely stole the show!” - Jason, Popstar-turned-Puppeteer - Perth, Western Australia

Tom is 11 and his 9 year old brother William has been living with cancer for the last 3 years. Tom’s mum Meagan says: “When William was diagnosed, Tom felt the attention shift away from him and his other brother Jack. This threw the siblings’ routines into unpredictability. They didn’t know who’d pick them up from school or tuck them in. Camp made Tom feel heard and fussed over again - after cancelled holidays and outings. A Camp Companion (volunteer) overheard Tom say to some younger kids: ‘At camp you don’t have to worry about your sick brother or sister. It’s our turn to have fun!’ I think there were times when he must’ve felt as if he was treading on egg shells. Then, when William goes away on camp for five days, I’m given lots of time to fuss over the siblings, which is greatly anticipated and appreciated.” - Tom, superstar sibling - Adelaide, South Australia

David is a rare and much cherished breed. As a volunteer Companion at our camps, David is a role model for boys living with cancer. We have half the number of male Companions as female – so his support is invaluable. David is one of two volunteers in Alice Springs. He supports Bryce who lives in a remote community with no postal address. David personally ensures Bryce gets all camp info, arrives at the airport on time and doesn’t miss out. His regular contact has built trust with Bryce’s indigenous community. They now come along to Family Camp and even treat David as one of their family. We have 2,500 volunteers like David and a little over 100 staff on our books. By keeping our head count low, we keep our costs minimal so we’re able to maximise the amount of money that goes straight to kids living with cancer across Australia, like Bryce. - David, volunteer Companion and cherished breed - Alice Springs, Northern Territory

“I split my time between Victoria’s three major hospitals. I help families to realise they’re not alone on their child’s cancer journey. When I meet a newly diagnosed family, I ask: ‘What are your four most urgent needs?’ They list them and I say: ‘We can help you there!’ or I refer them to other providers. Then we move to the next four! I’m the direct link – the person that knows the family’s situation inside out. This prevents them from being passed around. In addition to encouraging families to take up our flagship programs (camps; fun days; puppet shows) I’ve arranged for us to fix the brakes on the car of a mum whose daughter was just diagnosed. Now she can drive to and from hospital – one less stress ticked off that list. I bought a wig for Lilly, 5, who was nervous about starting school without hair. Her mum sent me a picture on her first day, in the wig. She looked so happy.” - Linda, Fairy Godmother, Family and Hospital Support Team, Camp Quality - Melbourne, Victoria

CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE With the first year of our 5-year Strategic Plan under our belt, I can proudly say that it’s been a year of significant milestones.
acknowledgement from the Australian Council for Young Children: “In regards to its commitment to children’s safety, ACF would see Camp Quality as a leader among current children’s based organisations nationally.”
Some of the many major initiatives achieved include piloting emotional support at Family Camps through an external partnership, launching our domestic support program, increased support/funding of Play Therapists in oncology wards, growth of our donor acquisition plan, embedding of the new workforce structure, alignment of volunteer management with People & Culture and safety practices, and the fantastic growth of i98FM’s Camp Quality Convoy event in Illawarra.
This acknowledges that we take the safety of our children and their families seriously and that our staff and volunteers are committed to best practices. A culture of safety excellence is now well embedded in Camp Quality. Our greatest challenge over the next 4 years is to achieve success in our new fundraising initiatives as we endeavour to define Camp Quality as a charity that provides for children with cancer, as well as children where the parents have cancer, and one that personifies an infectious culture of positivity.
We have managed the business performance well within a challenging economic climate to ensure we haven’t exceeded our planned budgeted deficit. We look forward to improving our overall revenue with new fundraising strategies over the next 12 months.
All of the above cannot be done without the support and dedication of many. To all the volunteers who collectively give more than 300,000 hours each year, we say a sincere thank you. Camp Quality would simply not exist without your support and for this we are extremely grateful. I would also like to thank our donors, sponsors and supporters who believe in who we are and what we do. Finally thank you to the staff and my fellow Board members who have been firm in their resolve to make a difference and continue the growth of such a wonderful organisation.
There have been many successes from a program perspective. We can proudly state that we now reach 1 in 2 newly diagnosed children each year and we are on track to approach 2 in 2 in the foreseeable future. Our Primary School Education Program celebrated the participation of its 4 millionth child, a figure that reinforces its long term value. However, out of all of our successes, one of the most pleasing is the

OUR STRATEGIC FOCUS
Camp Quality will continue to focus on sustainable expansion over the next four years to ensure the programs and services we provide are meeting the needs of every child living with cancer and their families in Australia. As part of our five-year Strategic Plan, we've set ourselves two strong achievable goals with clear outcomes.
Goal 1 – To deliver programs with more relevance, equity, reach and effectiveness In the last year, we: • Expanded our Program Team investing in staff focused on program growth • Introduced a Family Support and Hospital Team who provide real and direct support to families. • Established a National Program Outcome Model across our program suite to ensure we are meeting needs. • Implemented a new National Recreation Model, with activities aligned to age specific needs and program objectives. • Completed stage one in our national Play Therapy Program expansion. • Launched a Domestic Support Program. • Introduced new state of the art puppets in our Primary School Program. • Established a partnership with CanTeen to ensure every child from 0-24 has access to ongoing age-appropriate services through our two-way referrals. • Piloted professional emotional support at family camps in partnership with Redkite. • Expanded respite opportunities to families through a partnership with Ronald McDonald House. Goal 2 – To build a braver, more optimistic and sustainable organisation In the last year, we: • Continued investment in the diversification of our revenue streams. • Progressed a safety culture by strengthening our risk management and safety framework. • Conducted an external brand evaluation and developed the resulting brand and communications strategy. • Aligned volunteer management with People & Culture and safety practices. • Embedded our workforce structure. • Implemented a risk management framework. • Strengthened our Board induction and established a reporting cycle.
CELEBRATING OUR STRATEGIC PLAN WINS What a year! Our five-year strategy was always going to be an ambitious ask of our staff and volunteers, but they have risen to the challenge in year one. The theme of this year’s Annual Review is “More than Camps” – and our strategic plan wins reflect this theme perfectly. The extensive Family Research Project (ARTD Consultants) we undertook in 2010-2011 recommended that we promote our programs more to newly diagnosed families. To do this, we introduced a wonderful new Family Support and Hospital Team, which has increased the number of families registered with us by 17%. Ask any of our existing families and they’ll all say the same thing: they won’t regret it. We completed stage one of our national Play Therapy Program expansion, with funding for this program set to increase in the future as a result of the effectiveness of the innovative techniques these professionals use. Making cancer treatment less scary for children and less stressful for their worried parents is a high priority for us and we’re hugely encouraged by the results we’ve seen in 2012-2013 in Sydney’s children’s hospitals. This is an area that’s set to grow. We also launched a Domestic Support service – which gives parents one less thing to worry about when their child returns from treatment. A squeaky clean home is essential for children
who need to avoid infection and keep their immune systems strong. This program has been developed in direct response to the identified needs of families, as stated in our Family Research Project. We’re committed to meeting these identified needs, which sometimes means innovating and developing new programs in this way. Evaluating our program outcomes will also continue to be embedded in our program strategy to ensure we are measuring the true impact of our programs. Our collaboration with CanTeen and Redkite ensures easier access to services across the sector for our families. Our partnership with CanTeen ensures that every child from 0-24 has access to age appropriate services through our two-way referrals and in conjunction with Redkite, we are piloting professional emotional support at our Family Camps. It’s this kind of collaborative working in the not-forprofit sector that avoids the perceived duplication that is sometimes offputting to potential donors. And to implement all of this, our most precious resource – our people – have been invested in by embedding our workforce structure. This new structure now provides a robust infrastructure to support the implementation of the big and challenging goals of the second year of our five year strategic plan.

THROUGH THEIR CANCER JOURNEY Our Programs create optimism and resilience for every child living with cancer in Australia.
Right from diagnosis, throughout treatment and in remission, palliative care or bereavement, our programs support the whole family by building optimism and resilience; in hospital, at home, at school and away at camp.
Our Family Support Programs
provide tailored support to families through their cancer journey. We have a dedicated team who meet families in the early stages of their diagnosis to help them access support as they progress through treatment and return back home. Our professional cleaning service gets a familyâ€™s home ready for when a child returns home after hospital. Our holiday respite service gives families some essential de-stress time, away from the intensity of their cancer journey. We also work closely with social workers to support families in extreme financial difficulty.
Our Hospital Program has
expanded dramatically over the last year. We now support Play Therapists at Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick, The Children's Hospital at Westmead, John Hunter Children's Hospital in Newcastle and (by December 2013) at The Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, with further expansion planned.
Play Therapy provides children with coping strategies that help them deal with their illness inside and outside of hospital. The program reduces their distress and helps them overcome fears throughout treatment. We also run regular hospital-based activities: our much-loved puppets make bedside visits which boosts the confidence of children living with cancer and gives them a large dose of the best medicine: laughter.
Our Education Programs transform lives by teaching primary schools how to be supportive and understanding of kids living with cancer. For example our touring puppet show, the Primary School Education Program, de-bunks myths about cancer (such as reassuring kids they canâ€™t catch cancer) and prevents bullying of kids who return to school looking so different from their classmates after treatment.
Our Recreation Programs provide
children living with cancer and their families with an essential break from hospital, stress and intensity. They are especially designed to encourage strength, confidence and independence. Meeting families who have gone through a similar thing builds up an invaluable, life-long support network where optimism thrives and normality can be embraced again.

Coping with change during treatment and remission •
Our Primary School Program helps a child’s school understand how to be supportive and understanding of children living with cancer. The fun interactive show, using puppets, reduces children’s fears as they learn that you can’t catch cancer and has a positive impact on the child living with cancer, along with their siblings. Holiday Respite program helps regional and remote families (many of whom have spent up to two years apart) have something exciting to look forward to. It’s often a significant family milestone to have a short break away together. Family Camps, Fun Days and Kids Camps become a celebration of how far a family has come. It’s all about celebrating the small significant steps along the way.
. Supporting families through many challenges •
• • •
Play Therapy funding helps equip children during and after treatment, it involves our Play Therapists using innovative play techniques to ensure the child with cancer is cooperative and far less petrified of cancer treatment and operations. Family Fun Days create a positive environment for family time and networking. Family Camps help families relax, reconnect, spend quality family time and connect with other families on a similar journey. The kids’ only activities also provide valuable parent time. Age-specific kids’ camps for both patients and siblings ranging from 4 -13 years, help kids build confidence, optimism and new supportive friendships. They also provide patients valuable oneon-one time back at home with older (or younger) children who often have been missing out due to the extra challenges cancer and treatment brings on a family. Our family experiences are offered to families as they are donated by our generous community partners. These may be tickets to local sporting events, concerts, movies or festivals. 31

OUR SUPPORTERS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. One of the best things about Camp Quality supporters is how they live and breathe our values of optimism and fun in their FUNdraising. Camp Quality esCarpade, our outback motoring adventure, travelled from Newcastle to Canberra in October 2012. Between them these 66 wacky car owners raised an engine busting $1.2 million – enough for Camp Quality to provide a year’s worth of resiliencebuilding support for 300 families who have a child living with cancer. The event was replicated on the west coast with WesCarpade, travelling 1,810kms and raising a whopping $364,000 in only its second year. Our 10th anniversary Supper Club took on a fabulous Alice in Wonderland theme. Hundreds of the country’s top restaurants donated tables and food for the event held in Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide and Sydney. Luke Jacobz, Kate Ritchie,
Of course, every single fundraiser is key and if we had the space in these pages, we’d thank everybody!
Justin Melvey, James Magnussen, Josh Thomas and Justine Schofield were some of the many celebrities who attended. The event, kindly sponsored by Lexus, Champagne Taittinger and McWilliam’s raised $509,008 – enough to support 135 families for the next year.
Here are some highlights of some of the wild and wacky things our community FUNdraisers have done to ensure that laughter is the best medicine for children living with cancer:
What do 764 trucks and 926 motorbikes look like? One of the world’s biggest truck convoys, that’s what. In November 2012 the i98FM Camp Quality Convoy in Illawarra, NSW, smashed all records and expectations. For the first time in its eight year history, it broke the $1million mark (raising $1,028,262). This all wouldn’t be possible without the support of our generous volunteers and sponsors i98FM, WIN network, Illawarra Coal, Stockland, Illawarra Mercury and Bendigo Bank.
Enormous thanks to all those generous truckers who joined in the lead truck bid - with Craig Duran of MJ Rowles taking out the lead spot with a whopping $110,000 donation.

In total, our Events and Community fundraising teams raised a total of $6,960,000 in 2012-13, an increase of 6% from the previous year.
OUR CORPORATE PARTNERS Our corporate partners across Australia continue to amaze us and share in our culture of optimism and resilience. Collectively our corporate partners raised $6,350,000, increasing their funds by 27% from the previous year. There were so many highlights that contributed to this including: •
The Arnott’s Foundation – from fun runs, to a golf day, gala dinners and trivia nights, they did it all and raised over $230,000 to ensure we can provide our Family Camps across Australia.
Lorraine Lea Linen embraced their new partnership with us by dedicating a whole month of linen parties to raise $168,000 for our children and their families.
McDonald’s celebrated their 25th year of sponsoring our Primary School Education Program and helped us reach our 4 millionth child through the Camp Quality Puppets.
Motoractive captured the energy and passion of the car enthusiast community through major events Motorex, Cruise for Charity and Bathurst 12hr. These events raised over $170,000, allowing us to send 200 newly diagnosed children on camp.
nabbusiness NSW/ACT launched into their first year of partnering with us. Their 750 staff and fantastic customers got behind a myriad of events that took place from Coffs Harbour to Canberra and together raised over $260,000 in support of our Junior Camps.
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and their high-profile partnership with Camp Quality enjoyed another successful year; they continue to support our families through their Family Game Day and year-long fundraising activities, in addition to providing significant branding, sponsorship and advertising opportunities.

Over the last financial year, 8 cents for every dollar raised goes towards our administration expenses. This is below our benchmark of 12 cents in every dollar.
• We have recruited over 13,300 new donors and launched our new supporter newsletter, The Optimist in February 2013 as a way of reporting back to you all twice a year on how the generous donations we receive are being spent. Our bequests program also generated us $444,694 and this continues to be a significant stream of income for Camp Quality. Our first ever ‘Bounce Forward Luncheon’ was held in October 2012. Forty-one attendees at Melbourne’s Vue de Monde donated $284,000 – enough for 71 families who have a child living with cancer to receive a year’s worth of Camp Quality’s resilience-building programs.
As we continue to develop innovative, expanded and much needed programs for our families, we will need your help. If you're interested in partnering with Camp Quality, please contact us now on 1300 662 267.

OUR VOLUNTEERS Our volunteers are one of the most important parts of the Camp Quality family. Without them, we simply wouldn’t exist.
Here are some wins: •
We employed a full-time Volunteer Advisor, solely dedicated to volunteer management processes.
We have 2,500 volunteers at Camp Quality, but a little over 100 paid members of staff.
In July 2012 we undertook our first Volunteer Engagement Survey, which will now be an annual exercise in keeping our volunteers inspired, motivated and engaged.
The latest survey revealed that 83% of volunteers indicated that volunteering at Camp Quality increases their self-confidence and interpersonal skills, in comparison to 76% the previous year.
We set up a Volunteer Consultation Committee, with a representative from each location across Australia.
We ran a recruitment campaign for male volunteers to act as Companions at our Camps (to be paired with boys living with cancer) during National Volunteer Week. This generated media coverage across the country on TV radio and in newspapers and magazines. This resulted in 66 new male volunteers signing up in a two-month period; a large upsurge from the same period last year.
We recognised the achievements and contribution of our volunteers through our Dick Gillard Award. FY2012-13 was the first time we rewarded local winners rather than just one overall winner.
By keeping our staff head count close to 100 nationwide, we keep our costs very low so we’re able to maximise the amount of money that goes straight to kids living with cancer. This is why every single dollar you donate makes a difference. Thank you. Of our 2,500 volunteers: • 128 are Camp Leaders, a volunteer who leads one of our resiliencebuilding Camps. • 127 are medical volunteers (who go away to camps to give children their medication). • 225 are Support Group members (see our supporters pages for info about the vital role Support Groups play). • A number help in office admin roles, fundraising roles and through our internship scheme in our Marketing department and other teams • The remaining 1,800 are Camp Companions – paired with children living with cancer at our camps, or Rovers – volunteers who assist where needed at any of our resilience-building camps.
â€œLooking after Camp Quality kids is not about fairies, bedtime stories and ponies. Well, not all the time! In my experience, it's rolling in mud at laser tag, teetering at heights on high ropes, canoeing, surfing and raft building. It's here you change lives by making a kid living with cancer smile, laugh and become more resilient. It's here you make lifelong friends with other volunteers who are selfless, funny and inspiring. This is not a sad volunteer job. You leave every camp with more wrinkles from smiling and laughing so much.â€? â€“ Aaron, Camp Companion

OUR FINANCIAL RESULTS For the year ended 30 June 2013, we met all our financial targets in revenue, expenses and planned deficit: 2013 Actual $m
2013 Budget $m
2012 Actual $m
Realised investment loss
With the implementation of our 5-year strategic plan, we've quarantined $6.5 million of our investment portfolio to fund our program development and delivery to meet current and unmet needs of children and families living with cancer. We're working on planned deficit budgets for the first 3 financial years (2013 to 2015). By financial year 2016, we should be back on break even and on track to surplus budgets.
Supporting children living with cancer and their families
Gross revenue has grown by 5% to $16.2 million. The main growth in dollar terms has come from corporate partnerships. Compared to last year, we've registered growth in events and community, donor management, grants and government. Bequest income, however, is down by $1.4 million. Although we've made budget overall, we are disappointed not to have hit our budgets in a number of key revenue streams. Our results reflect the tough and competitive environment that we operate in. Over the past 7 years, we've averaged a 9% gross revenue growth per annum.
In 2013, we focused on improving programs and developing new programs to meet identified and unmet needs. We have achieved an increase in program expenditure of 6% in a challenging economic environment. Over the last 7 years, our programs have grown at an average of 13% per annum. 57% of our staff work in program development and delivery. 12000

Should the portfolio value reach 5% or more below the minimum, the budget contingency plan will be activated Portfolio value should not exceed a maximum of 12 months worth of current budgeted expenditure. Should the portfolio value reach 5% or more above the maximum, the Audit & Compliance Committee has the discretion to either increase the cap ratio or develop a plan to bring the portfolio back to its benchmarks within a 12-month period.
The Board, through the Audit & Compliance Committee oversees the investment and management of our investment portfolio. The key principles of our investment strategy policy are as follows: • Growth portfolio aimed at earning returns of CPI plus 6% - 7% over the long term • Benchmarked against Morningstar Growth Index, aiming to beat the 5-year average • Socially responsible investment strategy – we would not knowingly
During the year, the management of our investment portfolio was put to tender. We did a comprehensive review of the tenders based on a number of key criteria and have reappointed Centric Wealth for a 2-year term.
Operating with a tight deficit budget, we have managed to come in right on target with our expenditure. We activated a contingency plan towards the end of the 2nd quarter when it was anticipated that we may not meet our revenue budget. Our administration expenses are maintained at 8% of gross revenue. This ratio has been on a downward trend over the years. Over the past 7 years, we've managed to average administration expenses at 10% of gross revenue.
