OVERVIEW OF ORGANIZATION:

Camp Trillium (officially The Trillium Childhood Cancer Support Centre) offers year-round recreational experiences to bring children with cancer and their families together. We work to provide an environment that normalizes relationships and experiences, helping them in the healing process and enhancing their quality of life.

Throughout the year, Camp Trillium offers over 54 different programs each year, all at no cost to our campers. These programs include week-long (or longer) traditional summer programs, to weekend camps in the spring and fall, community based programs and those based out of the various children’s cancer clinics across the province of Ontario.

We are a registered Canadian charity, and all of our programs are free to the families. We are funded by generous donations from individuals, service clubs, businesses, and foundations.

We are accredited by the Ontario Camping Association, and a gold-star member of the Children’s Oncology Camping Association International (COCA-I). You can see a full list of our partnerships and affiliations here.

As we are a camp for children with cancer, our programs are tailored for all abilities whenever possible. We also have medical staff on the premises whenever camp is in session.

We are governed by a board of directors made up of pediatric oncologists, medical oncology team, parents, community members and business professionals.
