Things we love: Camp Ooch

Camp Oochigeas (better known as Camp Ooch) is a charity that we love.

Camp Oochigeas is much more than a summer camp. Camp Oochigeas offers year-round programs for children affected by childhood cancer at our site in Muskoka, at SickKids Hospital, at our Ooch Downtown facility in Toronto and in the community.

Through these programs Camp Oochigeas provides fun and meaningful experiences to approximately 800 children affected by cancer each year at no cost to their families. This is all made possible by the generous support of our donors.

Le Dolci will be visiting Camp Ooch on Wednesday, May 15 for a cupcake workshop with 20 families and we’re excited to get to know the families and see the space where kids have a ton of fun with all of the volunteers.

If you’d like to get involved and become a Camp Ooch volunteer or help send a child to Camp Ooch by making a donation visit their site and check out their work!
