Camp Ooch is a camp for children with or affected by cancer, offering day camp, in-city day camp and overnight camp throughout the summer, as well as weekend camps and family programming throughout the year. Camp Ooch is also the only overnight camp in Canada with on-site chemotherapy, IV treatment and blood transfusions.
Known as the social cure for cancer, Camp Ooch has expanded to year-round programs in Muskoka, SickKids, Ooch Downtown and other various centres across Canada.
Dr Jim Whitlock, Head of Hematology/Oncology at The Hospital for Sick Children, explains why this camp is important in the life of these sick children:
“The attitude they develop coming out of Camp is an important part of their therapy and their healing process really helps them to fight their cancer better.”
This summer Budget Propane had the pleasure of working with Camp Ooch to support their amazing cause. Below is a thank you letter from a contact from Ooch Camp:
