The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
Camp Goodtimes provides children and youth affected by cancer and their families with an unforgettable summer camp experience in a medically supervised, safe and supportive environment. We’ve been friendship-building and memory-making in British Columbia since 1985 and work with nearly 500 campers each summer through our kids, family and youth camps.
We are proud to host Camp Goodtimes at two facilities throughout the summer. The first five weeks take place at the UBC Malcolm Knapp Research Forest’s stunning Loon Lake Retreat Centre near Maple Ridge, BC and our last two weeks of programming take place at Camp Pringle on the shores of Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island.
We believe that time spent at camp allows kids to just be kids, away from their diagnosis. We are proud to provide programming that gives joy, confidence, support and hope for children with cancer and their families.
