Since 1988, Camp Goodtimes has been a summer haven for New Brunswick children who have cancer or have had cancer. It brings them together for a week of fun, adventure and friendships in a safe, medically supervised environment. Camp Goodtimes is open to children aged 7–12. A Junior Leadership Program offers unique leadership development opportunities to teens aged 13–16. All children and teens can bring a guest at no cost.
The Canadian Cancer Society is proud to recognize New Brunswick Masonic Charities and Housing Ltd. for their long-standing support of Camp Goodtimes. The Masons have been sponsoring Camp Goodtimes for the past 30 years.
Camp Goodtimes is an accredited member of the Canadian Association of Pediatric Oncology Camps (CAPOC). CAPOC is a national collaboration of independently operating children’s oncology camping organizations. The association is committed to ensuring that every child affected by childhood cancer has the opportunity for a safe, first-class pediatric oncology camping experience.

Family Camp Goodtimes
Family Camp Goodtimes, funded by KOA Care Camps (www.koacarecamps.org), is a new program for New Brunswick families who have a child living with or beyond cancer. It was especially designed for families who may not feel ready to participate in a week long camp. It gives families a chance to meet new friends, try new things, reconnect with nature and walk away with new memories to cherish. Families have the option to participate in as much or as little as they choose. There are activities for all ages including opportunities for parents to socialize with other parents and join in too! The camps will take place August 23-25 and September 20-22, 2019. For more information and to register, please contact us at 1 800 455-9090 or visit www.campgoodtimes.org.
