Guide to getting started

What we do

Camp Ooch is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that helps kids affected by childhood cancer just be kids. Our In-Hospital, Community and Overnight programs bring Magic and joy to kids and families across Ontario, at any stage of their cancer journey. Even COVID-19 can’t stop camp—new in 2020 are virtual programs that will help us reach the same number of kids and families as ever!

Last year, 1,600 kids and families experienced the social cure for cancer, at Ooch, but we need your help to reach thousands more, closer to home.

"All your efforts mean so much to so many people like me. [...] We rely on community fundraisers and donations to make Camp possible."

Frequently asked questions

Which fundraising option is right for me?

A DIY fundraiser is great if you want to fundraise online and get started right away. Events are right for you if your event takes place offline or if you’d like help from Ooch to set up your page.

If you’d like to honour a person’s memory and collect donations for an extended period of time, an In Honour page may be your best option.

I don't need an online fundraising page but I still want Ooch to support and promote my fundraising event. What should I do?

Go to the host an event page for more information or complete the registration and agreement form. The team at Ooch will then be in touch to discuss your event.

What will happen to the money I've helped raise?

Every donation will help give kids affected by childhood cancer from across Ontario the chance to just be kids. Learn more about where your donations go and how your support makes our work possible.
