Help us raise money

For participating in Sporting Life 10k Virtual Run

Our story

Robbie was diagnosed with PreB ALL in April 2018. He was 3 years old when his world changed and Camp Ooch was there for him in the first week. The volunteers at Camp Ooch are the happiest, friendliest bunch of people we have ever met. They brightened Robbie's day with crafts and conversation when he was stuck in his room. Later we experienced family camp at Trillium. What a wonderful place to be. This year J-P will be running for Ooch. We hope it will be the first of many years. The boys are excited to cheer on their dad and raise money for this amazing organization.


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!
