Camp Quality was named based on the words (above) of a pediatric oncologist and began in Sydney, Australia, in 1983 by Vera Entwistle. Founder Entwistle was responsible for introducing Camp Quality to several countries, including the United States.
The first U.S. camp was held the summer of 1986 in Northwest Missouri for 43 campers. Today, Camp Quality Northwest Missouri typically hosts 100 campers, and 14 additional camp locations offer this unique experience to hundreds more.
Each location hosts a week long residential camp for children in the summer and a reunion in the fall. Year-round activities include family weekends, holiday parties, day trips, winter weekends and many other events that provide for fun and friendship.
