Queensland Conference and Camping Centres (QCCC) consists of a team of catering, cleaning, maintenance, outdoor education and management professionals striving to care for our guests with excellence in hospitality, service, partnership and outdoor instruction. Employing 150 Queenslanders, QCCC is one of Queensland’s largest and most decorated Outdoor Education providers.
As a ministry of Queensland Baptists to the Global community, the QCCC ethos and culture is informed by a shared recognition of the historical figure of Jesus the Carpenter from Nazareth, a sense of joyful obligation to be true to His example and a responsibility to achieve the task He has given us to redeem the created order. As a nation Australia enjoys many of the benefits that arise from a Judeo-Christian heritage, and we see our role as continuing to live out this approach to life, advocating its benefits proven in human history.
QCCC is responsible for the viable and effective operation of our centres and expeditions in keeping with the vision and values of the Queensland Baptists. We seek to be our customers’ first choice by consistently exceeding their expectations and providing the very best care for our guests through professional competence. The accolade most heard about QCCC staff is “they go the extra mile”.
As a ministry of Queensland Baptists, Queensland Conference and Camping Centres (QCCC) exists to create life-changing experiences through excellence in hospitality, service, partnership, and outdoor instruction.
“The change you want to see in the world lies within”
We will achieve our vision by:
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. All QCCC staff are required to have a current Blue Cards before commencement of employment, many have First Aid and CPR qualifications, and most Outdoor Education instructors have Bronze Medallion certification and Wilderness First Aid. Brookfield, Mapleton and Tamborine have an onsite defibrillator.
CHILD SAFE SITES AND POLICIES:
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 Safe Ministry Resources.
