Welcome to Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium

for kids and families affected by childhood cancer

Even COVID can’t stop camp!

A lot has changed because of COVID — but the needs of kids and families affected by childhood cancer haven’t. After a year of virtual programs, we are excited to announce that we are working to bring back in-person camp programs this summer, including overnight camp, day camp and community programs across Ontario! Our medical advisory committee and task force, made up of experts in paediatric oncology and infection control, are helping guide us back to in-person programming.

Spring & Summer Programs

Childhood cancer hasn’t taken a pause during COVID. But neither have we. Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium will continue reaching kids and families throughout the pandemic, wherever they are, including a return to in-person programs this starting this summer. No matter what, we will continue to be there for your family through in-hospital and virtual programs in all four seasons.

Life-changing support

Camp was probably the first place where I didn’t feel so different anymore. I was surrounded by people just like me having a great time and laughing, and it made me feel comfortable enough to just be myself and not the “kid with cancer".

From the great outdoors to hospital floors, we are there for kids & families

Volunteers and staff have joined thousands of families on their journey with childhood cancer since 1983. Camp programs run in paediatric oncology centres and communities all across Ontario.

In-Hospital programs

We meet kids soon after their diagnosis, bringing moments of fun and laughter to them, their siblings, and parents during time in hospital.

Community programs

We bring the magic of camp close to home with year-round community programs across Ontario.

Overnight programs

Two overnight camp sites, including the only site in Canada to provide IV chemotherapy and blood transfusions – hosts programs for kids, teens, bereaved siblings, and families
