Fundraising

Camp Trillium runs over 50 different programs each year, and all are run at no cost to our campers. We are able to do this without any government funding – we are supported entirely by donations from individuals, service clubs, businesses, and foundations.

For a brief overview of Camp Trillium, and how your donations will benefit children with cancer and their families, read our Q & A.

Make an in-kind donation

Keeping a camp fully stocked is a hard job. Keeping two camps fully stocked year-round is even more challenging. You can support OuR Island and Rainbow Lake by donating your new and used supplies, or by becoming an official camp sponsor. Download our Wish List & Sponsorship packages to learn more.


Run or sponsor an event

A majority of our funds every year come from events. These events are what allows us to offer our program for no cost to children with cancer and their families.
