We are proud to share we have sent home 73 tired but happy campers....

Thank you parents, for trusting us with your precious children. We fed them, we swam with them, we climbed the Hopes Ropes with them, made crafts with them, played games with them, rode horses with them, sang with them, and we danced with them.

This year we graduated 4 campers and sent them home with a collage of past and present years at camp. We know great things lie ahead for each of them, wherever life may take them. We did our very best to host your campers with love, compassion, and respect. We did this with an army of volunteers.

To the volunteers: Camp 2018 only happened because of you. We know you gave up family, friends, sleep, and privacy for the time spent with the campers. We know you travelled from across the province and some as far as Manitoba, Alberta, and British Columbia to be a part of this special weekend. You did it!!!! You made children laugh, learn, and love. Your dance moves were groovy, your singing at meal time was DYNOMITE!!!!!, and your sense of humour through it all was very much appreciated. You struck the perfect balance between leadership and compassion.

BRAVO!! Get some rest, check for ticks(!!), and reflect on the memories and friendships made this weekend. It was all because of you..... thank you!


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.
