Our story

This year we will once again be running for our Rockstars - Evie and Sophia. Nine year old Evie is now in grade 4, has joined a Children’s Choir and is levelling up in her swimming lessons. She visits SickKids regularly to check in with her medical team who support her and help her deal with the "Chemo/Cancer Aftershocks" - all the things that have come up as a result of having years of chemo and living with a brain tumour. Twelve year old Sophia also continues to make monthly return trips to SickKids from her home in Timmins for testing but this past October received very good news that her chemotherapy was complete! After each visit to SickKids, both girls head straight for the Camp Ooch room to take part in their activities with other children. They are looking forward to summer vacation and attending Ooch which they absolutely love along with meeting up with all the wonderful councillors who have helped them continue to be happy, creative and confident young girls.


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!
