Receiving a diagnosis of childhood cancer can impact a families’ life forever. Priorities change, family dynamics shift and often times fun is the last thing on anyone's mind.
Camp Trillium provides kids with (and affected by) childhood cancer the opportunity to attend camp free of cost. We offer overnight camping at two locations, Rainbow Lake (Waterford, ON) and OuR Island (Picton, ON) as in-hospital programs.
Our 200+ acres of camping paradise provide children and families the opportunity to participate in activities such as hiking, sailing, swimming, fishing and archery.
We are more than just a Camp, we are a home away from home. We are committed to providing safe, memorable and enriching camping programs to families across all stages of their cancer journey.
What makes our Camp truly unique is that all of our programs are delivered through a family centred approach. This means we welcome the impacted child, as well as their mom, dad, brothers and sisters.
Our specialized programs, professional staff, and committed volunteers work together to support and promote the healing process for all family members.
At camp, everyone understands what it’s like to be impacted by cancer. Parents, siblings, and patients alike are temporarily free from the burden of disease.
