Our story

Why TEAM CUDDLE FISH you ask? What is the number one question Oaklie gets asked at Camp Ooch? "What is your favourite food?" His answer, "CURRY CUTTLEFISH". Camp Ooch has made a huge difference in our lives these past few year. The in hospital programs have meant that Oaklie had looked forward to going to clinic to make crafts and see friends, not for his "super juice". He was also able to go to camp alone his first year, without Mom or Dad in his new cervical collar, because they could provide Oaklie with 2 counsellors to keep him safe. The best part for Oaklie was swimming twice a day even with his PICC line, that otherwise could not get wet. At Camp Ooch it always feels like everyone knows your name, and for Oaklie everyone also knows he loves cuttlefish. His love for this crazy Chinese dimsum dish has even inspired a few counsellors to go out and try it for themselves. So come be part of an adventure, with team of CUDDLE FISH!

Description

Kids affected by childhood cancer still need the chance to just be kids!

A diagnosis of childhood cancer is a big, scary, sudden swerve in the road, changing life in an instant. 

For affected families, it can feel like everything is about cancer. Simple, childhood joys like friendships, birthday parties, or sports teams are left behind in the need for medical appointments, hospital stays, and long absences from school.

For over 35 years, Camp Ooch has offered a different path – the healing power of fun, friendship and self-confidence, and the joy of kids getting to just be kids! 

Often referred to as the social cure for cancer, Ooch provides programming at an overnight camp in Muskoka, at SickKids in Toronto, in specialized paediatric centres and in communities across Ontario. Camp Ooch is the only overnight camp in Canada to offer onsite IV chemotherapy and blood transfusions. 

Camp Ooch is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that relies exclusively on the generous support of fundraisers, corporate donors and individuals, like you.

Ooch changes the lives of over 1,800 kids affected by childhood cancer every year. However, almost 80% of kids with cancer in Ontario don’t have access to the wonders of camp. You can help change that.



Cancer changes a child's life.  So does Camp.  And so can you.

We still run for Ooch!
