Island children aged 7–16 who are living with cancer or brain tumours may enjoy a week of fun and friendship at Camp Goodtime. Youth also aged between 17-20 who have had a cancer experience may be eligible to join our Buddy Program. This is offered through the Canadian Cancer Society, Nova Scotia Division.
Other community camps
Island children aged 8–17 who are living in families affected by chronic illness or disability but are not ill or disabled themselves may enjoy Camp Triumph. This residential camp is located beside Cabot Beach Provincial Park, PEI.
Now I know that I will help someone with cancer even after I’m gone. It’s a footprint I want to leave behind me.
Support from someone who has ‘been there’
The Canadian Cancer Society’s peer support program is a telephone support service that matches cancer patients and their caregivers with specially trained volunteers.
