The story begins with 28 campers and a new mission!
It all started with the dedication of a pediatric oncologist Dr. Barrie deVeber from London Children’s Hospital and his graduate student John Maher. Their purpose was to bring the childhood cancer family together in a recreational and natural environment. With a $5000 commitment from the Odd Fellows and Rebekah’s, 28 campers enjoyed the first summer of Camp Trillium. The residential camp was held at Circle R Ranch in London with 20 campers and a day camp of 8 was held in London for the younger campers. Some of the activities included archery, horse back riding, crafts, swimming and the big event – a baseball game!
