AWARDS & ACCREDITATION

RISK MANAGEMENT

Safety Is Our Priority

Keeping our guests safe is the highest priority at all QCCC campsites. Our management team is constantly reviewing all activities and venues so any problems can be identified and simple, effective solutions provided for their management.  Our employees monitor events and situations to ensure the safety – physical, material, and otherwise – of not only our guests, but of those with whom we conduct business, our staff, officers, and facilities.  This limits the potential for problems at our venues while allowing everyone to have fun in a low-risk environment.  Risk Management Procedures are documented in the latest Risk Management Policy, which can be viewed upon request.

 

The Welfare of Children

QCCC is committed to ensuring that the safety, welfare, and wellbeing of children is maintained at all times during their attendance at our facilities and during their participation in activities that are arranged and supervised by our staff and officers. QCCC promotes a safe environment for all children, assisting all staff and officers in the development of safe practices that will help them recognize child abuse or any contravention of welfare or rights of children and young people. Should such a situation arise the appropriate notification procedures will be followed immediately.  QCCC staff who work and interact with children and young people at QCCC venues attend regular instruction and education in child protection awareness conducted by CACET Global (Child Abuse Consultancy Education & Training).

 

Pricing Policy

QCCC is a charitable organization and camp prices are kept to a minimum. Prices cover accommodation, programme coordination and assistance from QCCC staff. As each camp is designed to meet the specific requirements of each particular group, prices may vary according to site and programme components. All transactions in accordance with these rates are GST Free under Section 38-250 of A New Tax System (Good and Services Tax) Act 1999. Please contact the site of your choice for more information.
