CCS is actively monitoring and responding to the recommendations of the Public Health Agency of Canada regarding coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
To best protect the health, safety and well-being of our campers, volunteers and staff during COVID-19, we have made the very difficult decision to suspend our traditional in-person summer programs this season.
Instead, we are pleased to offer Goodtimes at Home, an online platform to bring our camp community to your home and provide peer-to-peer connection through activities and challenges.
Not only does the Canadian Cancer Society provide a camp experience for children and youth, but Family Camp is also offered. Family Camp is an opportunity for families who are living with cancer or beyond to take part in traditional camp activities with a focus on fun and learning. Similar to the youth camp, all staff are trained and equipped to ensure that all campers are safe and feel comfortable. This includes medical and Brigadoon staff as well as volunteers.

Some cancers, such as thyroid and testicular, have survival rates of over 90%. Other cancers, such as pancreatic, brain and esophageal, continue to have very low survival rates.
