Another successful camping year - 2016. Sending home 73 tired but happy campers!

We have sent home 73 happy but tired campers from Camp 2016. If our success is measured by smiles, laughter, and love, then we knocked it out of the ballpark!! It was the BEST CAMP EVER!

Thank you families for sharing your beautiful children with us. The campers have swam in the lake, danced to DJ Johnny, and even performed in front of more than 120 people at Variety Night. Every child was a star! We hope we provided some fun for the children and some rest for the parents.

To the volunteers, thank you for so generously giving of yourselves!! For finding your smile as you willingly awake your cabin before 7AM to jump into a cold lake, thank you. For making that craft to the best of your ability, even though it isn't a task you would choose, thank you. For being flexible and adjusting to the day of rain, thank you. For standing up and and singing about a Great Big Moose, thank you. For pretending you love an ash covered marshmallow made "just for you", thank you. But mostly, thank you for caring for our campers like they were your own. You helped create some wonderful memories and some life-long friends. Your work this weekend was worth it!

Now get some much deserved sleep! We shall see you at Camp 2017!

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.
