A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes life in an instant. For affected children and families,
it can suddenly feel like everything is about cancer.
Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium (merged in 2020) offers a different journey, where kids with
cancer can just be kids, and families connect with a community of strength and support
when they need it the most.
So much more than a summer camp—we offer the social cure for childhood cancer. Our
camp-inspired programs deliver fun, friendship, and community to children and families at
no cost to them year-round, all across Ontario.
Cancer changes a child’s life. So does camp. And so can you. Learn more at
