A portion of the proceeds from this year’s Boat Rally will go towards Camp Oochigeas which is a privately funded, volunteer-based organization that provides kids with and affected by childhood cancer with unique opportunities for growth through challenging, fun enriching and magical experiences.
Founded in 1983, Camp Oochigeas (Ooch) has been providing magical camp experiences for children with and affected by childhood cancer. Camp Ooch is much more than a summer camp. Ooch is the only overnight camp in Ontario to offer onsite IV chemotherapy treatment and blood transfusions. Camp Ooch also offers year-round programs in Muskoka, at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), various other paediatric hospitals and regional healthcare centres, and Ooch Downtown in the heart of Toronto. Through these programs, Camp Oochigeas provides fun and meaningful experiences to approximately 1200 children with and affected by childhood cancer each year, at no cost to their families. This is all made possible by the generous support of donors and volunteers.
