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.
We meet kids soon after their diagnosis, bringing moments of fun and laughter to them, their siblings, and parents during time in hospital.
We bring the magic of camp close to home or online with year-round community programs across Ontario.
Two overnight camp sites, including the only site in Canada to provide IV chemotherapy and blood transfusions – hosts programs for kids, teens, bereaved siblings, and families
