Event & Office Volunteers

Get involved at Ooch & Trillium

Volunteering at events across the province or in our offices in Toronto and Hamilton is a great way to get involved, and support children and their families affected by childhood cancer.

COVID-19 Update: Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium have suspended in-person volunteering. You are encouraged to follow the application link below, and we will connect when new volunteer recruitment resumes.

Every volunteer counts

We rely on hundreds of volunteers every year to help us ensure that every Camper experiences the magic of camp, no matter where they are in Ontario. Our event and office volunteers are no exception.

Whether you’re processing mail at the office, selling raffle tickets at our gala, or working the merchandise table at our open house, your time helps kids affected by childhood cancer.

We thank you in advance because we couldn’t do any of this without you!

Volunteer roles

Event Volunteers

As an event volunteer, you’ll work with our development department at community fundraising and engagement events. Whether it’s handing out medals at the Sporting Life 10k finish line, helping out at the silent auction at our gala, or helping us prepare for an upcoming event – you’ll have lots of opportunities to help out.

Most event volunteers are needed between April and October and you’ll be contacted as opportunities arise via email. These opportunities to volunteer take place across Ontario in communities like Toronto, Niagara, Muskoka, Ottawa, London, Prince Edward County and more.

Office volunteers come to our offices in Toronto or Hamilton during regular business hours (Monday to Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm) and take on valuable projects that help bring more kids to camp.

Frequently asked questions

How often would I be required to volunteer in the office?

We work with our office volunteers to find a schedule that works for you. Ideally, we look for volunteers to commit at least 3-4 hours every two weeks.

What will happen after I submit my inquiry form?

You’ll be contacted by a staff member within one week to discuss your interests and availability. You may be asked to come in for an interview.

Will I be volunteering with Campers and families?

Event and office volunteers don’t interact with Campers. If you’d like to get involved in programs, check out our camp volunteer page for more information.
