Throughout the pandemic, the magic of camp continues in an entirely new way—yes, we’ve gone 100% virtual! Our team is innovating and delivering year-round virtual programs to kids and families affected by childhood cancer, digitally connecting them to a community of care and support every day.
We’re also delivering modified in-person programs at hospitals right now.
Because of you, since the pandemic hit, we’ve delivered more than nine thousand free camp-inspired experiences in hospitals and homes in 152 communities across Ontario, including virtual summer camp. This year, we’ve reached 1,000 kids and their families! We are still together even, when we’re apart.
You can help us continue that work.
Here’s what one grateful parent told us:
“We are being asked to reach out and thank our front-line workers. What they do not know is that for many of us, Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium are also our front-line workers. Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium keep our kids medically safe while allowing them to fight the isolation of cancer treatments and the stigma of being different. Affected families know all too well what this isolation feels like. We’ve lived it. For many, we only got through the isolation thanks to you.”
Cancer changes a child's life. So does camp. And so can you.
