Help James raise money

For participating in 2022 Sporting Life 10K

My Story

My sons, Michael and Jonathan, and I have been supporting Campfire Circle (Camp Oochigeas), and participating in the annual SL 10K run since 2008 - this will be our 15th consecutive effort for the Camp. Our commitment to Camp Oochigeas is to honour the memory of Debbie Scarlett, my late wife and their mother, who lost her battle with cancer in 2007. Debbie believed in the power of Camp to develop the character of children, and she would have been an enthusiastic supporter of Camp Ooch.

Because of your generous support over the years the Scarlett family has raised and donated over $700,000 for Camp Ooch, and I am asking for your support once again. The needs are great and I am hoping you can continue with your generous support.

All the best to you and your families and best wishes for a happy and healthy 2022. 

Sincere thanks from Jamie, Michael and Jonathan Scarlett. 


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.
