All about Camp Trillium
Camp Trillium is committed to providing meaningful, fun and enriching camping experiences to families impacted by childhood cancer. We are a home away from home, a place where families can come to relax, to share, to have fun and to forget about cancer, even if just for a little while.

Camp Trillium calls to my heart. It speaks my language of love—one full of joy, laughter and fun. It is home. (more…)
On August 31, 2004, our family was changed forever. Our youngest daughter, Kristen Hope, then 19 months old, was diagnosed with Leukemia —cancer of the blood.
