Every year over 400 children in Ontario are diagnosed with cancer. Going to camp can seem like a remote possibility for children living with cancer. Camp Trillium was established in 1984 with this purpose in mind: to provide a camp environment for children affected by cancer and their families where they can relax and enjoy life again.
Camp Trillium offers a variety of summer and year round programs for children and their families. These programs provide much needed recreational activities and support. Campers gain strength and confidence to help them with their fight against cancer.
What do we want most for our campers?
Camp Trillium wants to give campers a camping experience where they can try new activities, make friends, have fun, and be able to laugh again. We want to show them that they are not alone and the friendships they form at camp will last a lifetime.
Our positive and supportive environment embraces the entire family. Siblings, children off treatment and families who have lost a child to cancer are welcome at camp. Campers return year after year to rekindle the friendships with other families across the province.
You can help Children!
You can send one child to camp for a week for $725. You will be providing an opportunity for a child to experience the Camp Trillium spirit in action with times of laughter, joy and fun. With your generous support our families are able to enjoy the Camp Trillium experience without the burden of costs.
The Odd Fellows and Rebekahs of Ontario provided the first grant to Camp Trillium in 1984 and they continue to be major supporters.
Camp Trillium does not receive government funding. We need your support to have an impact on children living with cancer and their families. Your support can come in a variety of forms including direct donations of funds, equipment, or volunteering your time. Have a canoe collecting dust in your garage and want to donate it to Camp Trillium? Contact us 1-888-999-CAMP.
Thanks to your support, children with cancer will have the opportunity to be kids again! For more information and pictures from around the camps, please visit the Camp Trillium website by clicking on the link below.
