The Christmas Season is about giving back!
For the second year in a row, Videotelephony Inc went to camp!
There are no words to truly describe Camp Quality. Being involved with the kids and all the people and that make it happen is a gift that is both beautiful and everlasting. Whether you are an individual or a company, let me just put you in my shoes to tell you why you should take on the volunteer opportunities at Camp Quality. This camp would not happen without the hard work of the directors and everyone
It sounds cheesy, but imagine being taken away for one week in a land where your objective is to have fun and be friendly.
Fellow videographer Nate McNeil and I went to Camp Quality to volunteer this year armed with a new camera and experience from last year. We were able to capture the fun, silly, funny and just plain wonderful moments all on video. Every year we have new volunteers and some old. Everyone always enjoys themselves and leaves wishing they could have just one more day.I spend much of my time (nights) in the media cabin with some of the most talented people I know. Kristy, Erin (aka Murph), Deyra and Nate who is my partner in camera shooting, editing and graphics. Graphics are Nate’s thing. Let’s be clear, he’s the motion graphics artist!
Here we are just hanging out on a late night.
By the end of camp we put together a mini feature movie for the kids and volunteers. Upon our arrival home we ask several local bands to donate their music. This year Amos the Transparent, Right by Midnight, Become the Sun, Kalle Matteson, Loudlove, Ty Hall, and the Love Machine honoured us with their sound! They will always be known as the soundtrack to Camp Quality, so thanks for that!
Camp Quality is a place where kids who have often been sick throughout the year can just be kids. We showed the camp video this year again at Ottawa’s Mayfair Theatre. It wasn’t the best day weather-wise, but we have the online version here for anyone who missed it. Please watch and enjoy!
Christmas is the perfect time to think about the year to come and the ways you can give back. If you’re looking to volunteer here is a glimpse of what happens at Camp! The week spent at Camp Quality is something we’ll continue to do for a long time. If you’d like to learn more please contact us to find out how you can help!
