About Camp 4 Cancer

These days it is hard not to come across someone that has either been directly or indirectly affected by cancer.  We all know ‘someone’ or we are that ‘someone’.  For anyone that has lived with it, through it or has beaten it, the process and roller coaster of emotions affects not just one person.

Raising funds for cancer research

Camp 4 Cancer is a charity formed and run by a group of close friends with its sole purpose to raise much needed funds for cancer research, in particular the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.   Our aim and purpose is to bring people together from all walks of life for a weekend of fun and entertainment situated on a stunning private property just 45 minutes from the CBD.

A weekend festival

Now in it’s 5th year this 2 night event has the feel of a weekend festival with live bands, food stalls, merchandise, camp fires, memorial and candle ceremony, loads of activities to keep the kids entertained, raffles, auctions, guest speakers, traditional aboriginal ceremony, laughs and tears.

Where do the funds raised go?

Thanks to your generous support and the participation of over 450 people who camped out at the event in 2018, we were able to raise a fantastic sum of $66,500. We started out in 2015 raising $8500, followed by 2016 with $16,500 and 2017 $28,500 with 100% of funds raised donated to Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Victoria.

About Ben The Founder

Camp4Cancer was originally founded and developed by Ben Roarty, after losing both his parents to Cancer over a short time. His passion to create an event that was close to my heart has now lead to an event which has grown every year and touched the heart of many lives. Having always helped out with many charities for many causes, once being touched personally by cancer Ben wanted to create an event where he could contribute any way he could to conquering cancer. With a great love of the outdoors he had a crazy idea to bring people together camping to raise funds for cancer research. Having spent some time at Peter Mac with his father, he wanted to make his idea come to life. After realising that one person can make a difference, BUT not without the help and voices of the masses. After pulling in a few friends and Wallan locals, C4C came to life. Having been fortunate to tour the incredible facilities of Peter Mac and after meeting some of the incredible Scientists working tirelessly to find cures for this dreaded disease. Knowing the funds we raise each year for the center, certainly leaves Ben and his dedicated committee proud of the event we run.

Join us camping under the stars

With the continued success of C4C we are excited to make this event even bigger and better than ever with us looking at running a few exciting events in the lead up to this fantastic weekend.

Tickets will be available from $15. Join us in at Camp 4 Cancer on 15-17 November 2019  and be part of the fight to beat cancer.

What people will tell you about last years Camp 4 Cancer

  • We had the privilege last year to be invited as VIP guests at Camp for Cancer. What an amazing weekend it was for our whole family. Ben and everyone made our time very special and we certainly felt like VIP’s. Camp for Cancer do such an incredible job not only with the weekend but their fundraising for Peter Mac Hospital. I urge everyone this year to go along to the weekend and help support Camp for Cancer while enjoying a terrific time.
