I volunteer at Camp Ooch and Camp Trillium to help bring magic to children throughout some of the hardest times in their lives, but I had no idea the impact that volunteering would have on my life! Camp has taught me about resiliency, and has provided me with an incredible community where everyone gets to be themselves. This community has taught me about the things that truly matter in life, and has shown me how to appreciate the little moments. The best part of camp is seeing the smiles on the Camper’s faces and seeing their growth throughout their time at camp. So many of these kids come to camp shy and nervous — but by the end of the session you can't get them to stop talking! Camp gives kids the chance to just be a kid, and I am so lucky to be a part of that.
Please consider donating to help bring this magic to more and more kids across the province every day. Thank you for all the support!
Childhood cancer changes lives. So does camp. And so can you.
A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes life in an instant. For kids and families, it can suddenly feel like everything is about cancer. Simple childhood joys like friendships, birthday parties, or sports teams being left behind in the need for medical appointments, hospital stays, and long absences from school.
Whether it’s in a hospital setting, in the community, online or at overnight camp, CAMPFIRE CIRCLE* fills the void, creating safe spaces for kids to be kids, so families can be families, at no cost to them.
It’s where curiosity and confidence, bravery and acceptance come to play, and healing through happiness is on the agenda, every day, and in every way! Kids and families are never alone, because there’s always room for one more in the circle.
Your support of Sporting Life 10K ensures that CAMPFIRE CIRCLE’S programs continue to reach 1,700 kids and their families every year. Your gift will make life-changing experiences possible.
*Did you know that Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium merged in 2020, and that we have a new name? Announcing … CAMPFIRE CIRCLE! We aren’t changing what we do—we're just changing our name.
