About Camp Trillium:
Founded in 1984, the Trillium Childhood Cancer Support Centre (Camp Trillium) offers camp programs for children with cancer and their families. Sick children spend significant time in hospital, but camp provides opportunities for socialization and personal growth. Camp Trillium runs free programs 54 times each year, helping over 700 kids.
During the summer, kids with cancer and their siblings can go to camp for up to 11 days. Activities for campers include swimming, archery, fishing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, crafts, and ropes courses. The onsite “Body Shop” is staffed by nurses who make sure that all kids take their medicine properly. At Family Camp, parents are welcome to join their kids at camp to create family memories. Camp Trillium programs for teens focus on leadership training and preparation to become a camp volunteer. Overnight camps are held at Camp Trillium’s OuR Island near Picton, and Rainbow Lake in Waterford, Ontario.
Camp Trillium offers day camp to kids between 4 and 7 years old. Similar to overnight camps, kids do outdoor activities while making friends and challenging themselves. For kids at McMaster Children’s Hospital who cannot go to overnight or day camp, Camp Trillium volunteers visit once a week to play with patients.
Trillium Childhood Cancer Support Centre is a medium-sized charity with donations and special events revenue of $2.6m in F2017. Administrative costs are 8% of revenues and fundraising costs are 15% of donations. For every $1 donated, 77 cents go to the cause, falling within Ci’s reasonable range. Camp Trillium has $1.0m in funding reserves which could cover program costs for less than 6 months. This indicates a need for funding.
This charity report is an update that has been sent to Trillium Childhood Cancer Support Centre for review. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
