I can still remember every "first" for me at Camp Ooch, whether that be my first encounter with Camp Ooch in the hospital during chemo, my first Muskoka trip, and especially my first 10k. For me, their summer program at Muskoka has been the highlight of my summer every year since I was 7. It's at Ooch where I can feel completely comfortable within the first 10 minutes of arrival, and make new friends within minutes. Being able to go to a camp where everyone has something to relate to is one of the reasons why I, and every other camper, love everything about Camp. With your help, Camp Ooch can continue to change the lives of children with cancer! Thanks for your support.
A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes life in an instant.
For affected kids and families, it can suddenly feel like everything is about cancer. Camp Ooch offers a hopeful journey, where kids with cancer can just be kids, and families connect with a community of strength and support when they need it the most.
They are much more than a summer camp—they offer the social cure for childhood cancer. Their camp-inspired programs deliver fun, friendship, and community to 1,900 kids and 745 families year-round, all across Ontario. As a response to COVID-19, virtual camp and in-hospital programs continue to reach kids and families living in isolation, wherever they are.

Cancer changes a child’s life. So does camp. And so can you.
