We are a group of CAMPFIRE CIRCLE (formerly Camp Ooch + Camp Trillium) volunteers and some of the luckiest people on the planet who get to experience the magic of camp alongside our amazing campers.
One of our traditions at CAMPFIRE CIRCLE is that when we see a camper doing something nice, challenging or brave we give them a "step in the right direction" — a sticker to add to their braid and a public shout-out for a job well done.
This year, we are challenging ourselves to run, walk and roll a few kilometres in the right direction in support of CAMPFIRE CIRCLE. Past and current volunteers are welcome to join our team in fundraising and with all the fun we will have along the way!
Thanks for the day campers!
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.
