Childhood cancer changes a kid's life
So does camp. Camp Ooch is a privately funded charity that brings laughter and joy to kids and families affected by childhood cancer.
Year-round community, in-hospital and overnight camp programs across Ontario deliver fun, friendship and a sense of community at any stage of a child’s cancer journey. New in 2020 are virtual programs—now reaching kids and families all across Ontario.
Virtual Summer Camp
Even COVID-19 can’t stop camp! We are bringing our amazing virtual, interactive and engaging camp to kids and families wherever they are this summer. Connections with camp friends, skill-building and more keep us together even though we are apart!

A sense of belonging
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".
