Wow! Camp 2017 was the BEST CAMP EVER 69 campers...

... danced, sang, swam, and captured the flag. The Camp Before Time was filled with prehistoric fun from T Rex sightings to the hatching of dinosaur eggs. 73 campers and volunteers participated in the polar Bear Swim on Sunday...

... with other campers and volunteers as witnesses - a record breaking number! Plenty of food, snacks, laughter, and love.

To the parents: thanks for sharing your children. Each child is unique and we got a small glimpse into the campers humour, uniqueness, hidden talents, and loving nature. We see why you love them so much! We love them too!!!

To the volunteers: you made all of the above possible. You too danced, sang, swam, and captured the flag. You also settled the dispute of whose turn was next in a fair manner. It was you that found the extra blanket for others when the temperature dipped to 5 degrees and you were cold too.

It couldn’t have happened without each of you! So may I say...Bravo! Bravo! Bravissimo! Very well done! SWELL!!!

Our Mission


Our camp is for all children whose lives have been affected by cancer – this includes their brothers and sisters. Bereaved children are also invited to camp. Camp Circle O’ Friends is unique in that it takes all the children in the home between the ages of 6 – 18 years of age. This provides the parents a much-needed respite and an opportunity to go to a show, out for dinner or simply enjoy a quiet bubble bath.

Our Activites


There is so much to do and so many things to learn and experience. Activities at camp include indoor and outdoor crafts, swimming, fishing, horseback riding, outdoor cooking, native crafts, a rock climbing wall, media production, water-skiing and tubing, a petting zoo and a variety of sports.

Our Volunteers


Camp Circle O’ Friends is only possible with the help and support of many dedicated and passionate volunteers. Volunteers must be 19 years of age and must complete a Volunteer Application form and get a Criminal Record Check. New volunteers must have at least two references and meet with the volunteer coordinator for an interview.
