Over the past thirty-five years, we have built partnerships with specialized paediatric cancer centres and hospitals across Ontario. These include: SickKids, McMaster Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre, Credit Valley Hospital (Trillium Health Partners), Rouge Valley Centenary (Scarborough Health Network), and Southlake Regional Health Centre.
These partnerships allow us to become part of each Camper’s cancer journey. We often meet Campers and families on the day of diagnosis, and we also help provide much needed respite for parents, by offering fun programming for Campers while in hospital.
CAMPFIRE CIRCLE is the only oncology camp in Canada able to provide onsite IV chemotherapy and blood transfusions. Nurses and doctors from these hospitals attend CAMPFIRE CIRCLE programs and support our Campers every year.
