CampOut for Cancer


We are so excited to be participating in CampOut for Cancer. It’s a new fundraising event that will challenge our team to be creative in dreaming up how to campout on a cool October night next fall in support of Camp Trillium. 

Camp Trillium is truly a camp like no other. It’s the largest of its kind in North America, sending 3100 campers each year to year-round camping and recreational experiences at no cost to the families. It’s privately funded, and a volunteer-based charity. And it's unique model of bringing entire families who live with cancer together at camp has since been adopted by many other camps across North America. 

The startling fact is, each year nearly 500 children in Ontario are diagnosed with cancer. So by donating to our CampOut for Cancer fundraising campaign, you will be helping to send more kids who have been diagnosed with cancer to a place where can spend time having fun with their brothers and sisters, make new friends, and forget about cancer for a while.

Until there is a cure, there’s Camp Trillium.

Thanks for considering donating to our team campaign! We really appreciate all of the support to help us reach our fundraising goal. 

Please make a donation
