Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium
Supervisor, Program Administration and Family Liaison
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. New in 2020 are virtual camp opportunities reaching kids and families living in isolation—at home or in the hospital—wherever they are!
Cancer changes a child’s life. So does camp. And so can you. Learn more at www.ooch.org.
The Family Liaison is accountable for overseeing the administrative processes of the Program Department with a focus on camper registration, recruitment and support.
