Gather Round This Summer at Overnight Camp!
In just two weeks, children and families affected by childhood cancer are coming to overnight camp at Campfire Circle Muskoka and Rainbow Lake! After two long years of pandemic disruption, we’re thrilled to welcome them back in-person, as we know camp is needed now more than ever. We’re grateful for your support, which makes it possible for us to provide these amazing experiences so that our Campers can make new friends, connect and heal.
Campfire Circle Open House is back!
We hope you will join us at one of our Campfire Circle Open Houses this summer. Your friends and family are also welcome to attend.
Hosted at two of our overnight camp sites, these events will celebrate the healing through happiness that you make possible for our Campfire Circle Campers! Both exciting events will include: group site tours, lunch, and a sing-a-long around the campfire.
CAMPFIRE CIRCLE continues to reach kids and families throughout the pandemic wherever they are, with camp-inspired overnight camp, teen & leadership, in-hospital and community programs. In-person or online—no matter what—we continue to be there for you and your family in all four seasons.
Even COVID can’t stop camp!
A lot has changed because of COVID — but not the needs of our Campers. Year-round programs continue throughout the pandemic including overnight camp, with family weekend retreats where families can maintain their household bubbles. Our medical advisory committee and task force, made up of experts in paediatric oncology and infection control, are guiding our efforts to provide safe in-person programming.

A sense of belonging
Camp was probably the first place where I didn’t feel so different anymore. I was surrounded by people just like me having a great time and laughing, and it made me feel comfortable enough to just be myself and not the “kid with cancer".

From the great outdoors to hospital floors, we are there for kids & families
Volunteers and staff have joined thousands of families on their journey with childhood cancer since 1983. Camp programs run in paediatric oncology centres and communities all across Ontario.
