Family Camps, both summer weeks and year-round weekends, remain the most popular program at Camp Trillium, and confirming families for camp is both an art and a science. We use previous experiences, composition of the family, ages of children attending and a variety of other factors that also help us in making decisions. We also require a mixture of returning/older families who are able to show new families how to jump into camp. We are incredibly happy that so many families have enjoyed and continue to enjoy our family camp programs, however, due to the rapid increase of family registrations, we have been forced to re-evaluate our prioritization system for accepting families into camp programs.

On behalf of all of us at Camp Trillium, thank you to M. W. Bro. Dowling and the members of the Masons of Ontario for your incredibly generous donation! "At a presentation Ceremony held at Camp Trillium, Rainbow Lake (Waterford, Ontario), on Dec 10 2013, Past Grand Master, M. W. Bro. D. Garry Dowling presented a cheque to Camp Trillium on behalf of the Masons of Ontario, in the amount of $44,531.88. "[Executive Director Marci Shea-Perry] was ecstatic about the amount donated, as she had no idea of what to expect. She explained that it is always a challenge for Camp Trillium to raise the funds necessary to send children living with cancer to camp and to maintain the sites."
