A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes life in an instant. Suddenly, everything is about cancer. Simple childhood joys like friendships, birthday parties, or sports teams are left behind in the need for medical appointments, hospital stays, and long absences from school.
Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium offer a different path—where the healing power of fun, friendship, and community are closer than the kids and families could ever imagine.
In an exceptional year, we’ve discovered that even COVID can’t stop camp! Year-round virtual camp-inspired programs now reach thousands of isolated kids and families wherever they are, in the hospital or at home.
Cancer changes a child’s life. So does camp. So can you.
“Camp has given my daughter friends during this pandemic. It is the only thing that makes her happy. She signs up for all the virtual programs. She loves to see the other Campers and staff.”
“When your child has cancer, there is so much you can’t control: his treatments, testing, or prognosis. The one thing I can influence is his happiness. You are a trusted partner in making him happy. It’s so important to his recovery.” —grateful parent
“Virtual programs are like a lifeline right now to kids and families struggling to stay positive—you are lifting their spirits, my spirits, and those of the medical team too. Thank you!” —Dr. Sarah Alexander, Staff Oncologist and Clinical Director, Haematology/Oncology, SickKids Hospital
