Camp program types & locations

In-hospital programs

We bring fun and friendship to hospital bedsides near you in a number of specialized paediatric care centres across Ontario: 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 South Lake Hospital. Programming during the pandemic may ebb and flow depending upon local community’s directives.

Keep an eye out for the camp team during hospital visits – you’ll recognize them by their braids decorated with bling. When we are not in the hospital, we offer virtual programs to help you stay connected with your camp community from anywhere in Ontario.

Community programs & day camp

Community programs across Ontario offer fun, camp-inspired programs closer to home. Throughout the year, in the evenings, on weekends or during the day, kids come on their own—or with the whole family. Programs range from week-long March break day camps to Halloween parties, sporting events, family weekend camping trips in the great outdoors — and so much more!

Overnight Camp

Overnight Camp is offered in all four seasons. Even Campers undergoing the most intense stages of their cancer treatment can attend. Immersed in nature, camp helps kids recapture a spirit of fun, friendship, self-confidence, and independence.

At family camp, families leave their cares behind to enjoy special times together away from home and hospitals, make new friends and build memories that last a lifetime.

Programs are wide-ranging from community campfires to game shows, music programs, trivia, crafts, magic, and more can be accessed from anywhere ensuring that everyone can be included.
