About Us

 WHAT IS CAMP OOCH?

Camp Oochigeas (Ooch) is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that provides kids with and affected by childhood cancer with unique opportunities for growth through challenging, fun, enriching and magical experiences.

Cancer changes a child’s life. So does Camp. At Ooch, we offer a wide variety of year-round programs for kids with cancer, their siblings, and their families. There’s something for everyone, and every program is guaranteed to be filled with friendship, fun and life-changing experiences.

WHERE DOES IT HAPPEN?

We offer various programs at our Residential (sleepover) Camp in Muskoka, at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), three other regional cancer centres across Southern Ontario and at Ooch Downtown, our urban recreational facility in the heart of Toronto. Programs are activated almost 365 days a year and are provided to families at no cost.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Cancer is a difficult experience for the whole family. In response to this reality, we offer various programs for children (ages 0-18) with and affected by childhood cancer, their siblings and their families. Some campers are newly diagnosed and on active treatment and some have been in remission for years. The Ooch community is full of kids and families that understand the realities of childhood cancer.
