How it Works

We invite you to follow your heart in dreaming up unforgettable moments with a new camping adventure

Camp Trillium is launching a new event to raise money to help us send more kids and their families living with cancer to camp.

We believe camp is where ever your heart is—so for this adventure you get to decide where and how you’d like to camp and show your CampOut spirit. The possibilities are truly endless! We know some of you will brave a cool fall night in your neighbour’s backyard with a couple of close friends. Others will take over their grandma’s living room and CampOut with a theme and costumes. Some will rally their entire school, sports team or local community club to CampOut in an unusual place. While others might simply gather with everyone they love around a campfire roasting marshmallows at their favourite campsite near a lake.

CampOut for Cancer is an opportunity for the entire Camp Trillium family, both new friends and old, to show their love and gratitude for Camp Trillium—Canada’s largest camp for kids and their families living with cancer. Together, we will pass this love forward by raising more money so more families can experience camp.

Here’s How To Get Started

Register + Set Your Goal

CampOut for Cancer is for everyone, of all ages and it’s easy to register. Just click here to sign up. Registration costs $25. As you fill out this form, you’ll be asked to set your fundraising goal. We encourage kids under 18 years of age to set a personal fundraising goal of at least $100, and for adults to set their goal to at least $250. But the sky is the limit. And we’ll help make sure you reach the target you’ve set by providing the fundraising latest tools and great ideas!

Choose Your Campsite + Your Crew

First decide who you want to camp with! Participants host their own CampOut Night with family, friends and colleagues.

And then decide what type of CampOut Campers you want to be. Are you and your crew going to CampOut at home, at your favourite campsite, in a field or at school? Or will it be downtown in your community centre, hockey arena or in some other unusual place to be camping? Or maybe you’re still not sure – in which case, scroll down for some ideas to help you decide what kind of camper you are!

Come Up With Your Plan

Let us know what you are imagining up for your CampOut, and we’ll help you and hundreds of others plan out your adventures for October 14, 2017. We’ll even send you a special CampOut For Cancer Kit filled with fun ideas, activities and helpful items for that night.
