This year’s national Camp and Care event will be held on Saturday 7 November at participating BIG4 Holiday Parks across the country and will celebrate the many hidden heroes within our community.


Campers can book a powered site for just $20, with all funds raised going directly to Camp Quality. The money donated will assist the charity in continuing to provide support to children suffering from cancer and their families through programs designed to foster strength, confidence, and courage in every aspect of their lives.


Campers attending the event will be treated to a night of fun and festivity. Kids young and old are invited to come dressed in their favourite superhero costume to enjoy a variety of super activities, games, entertainment, and even a movie or two under the stars.


Bookings will be open for participating parks on Thursday 15 October 2015. Mark it in your calendar! Make your booking online at


We look forward to seeing you there, and appreciate your help in raising money for this fantastic cause.
