Since 1989, Camp Goodtime 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 Goodtime 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 Goodtime. The Masons have been sending children to Camp Goodtime for the past 26 years.
Camp Goodtime 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.
Next year’s camp will take place July 9–15, 2017. For more information about dates and registration, contact the Canadian Cancer Society New Brunswick at 1-800-455-9090.
Clinical trial discovery improves quality of life
A clinical trial led by the Society’s NCIC Clinical Trials group found that men with prostate cancer who are treated with intermittent courses of hormone therapy live as long as those receiving continuous therapy.
