About Camp Trillium:
Founded in 1984, the Trillium Childhood Cancer Support Centre (Camp Trillium) offers camp programs for children with cancer and their families. The charity’s camps provide environments where children with cancer can develop normal relationships and experiences throughout their healing process. Camp Trillium runs over 54 camp programs annually that are either seasonal or year-round. Camp programs include Camp Trillium’s Family camp, Residential camp, Leadership-in-training camp, Teen Weekend camp, Quest program and Intern program. Most of the charity’s programs run at two locations: Rainbow Lake and OuR Island.
The Long Point Region Conservation Authority donated Rainbow Lake to Camp Trillium in 1998. The campgrounds can accommodate 230 campers, but no more than 120 campers stay at a time to ensure a comfortable environment. Camp Trillium acquired OuR Island in 1989. With 60 acres of land, OuR Island has four cabins that accommodate 120 people at a time. Camp Trillium reports that its current capacity cannot accommodate all families that apply for spots in their camp programs. As a result, the charity keeps a wait list and prioritizes applications.
Family camps are for families of children with cancer. The program provides a place for families to connect with others facing similar struggles, make lasting memories and try out new activities. Residential camps are for kids and teenagers with cancer. The program provides an environment for campers to grow independently, meet others in similar situations and make long-lasting relationships. Both Family and Residential camps are overnight programs. Camp Trillium offers a Quest program to teenagers looking to work with children with cancer. The charity’s Intern program is for teenagers and young adults who want to gain experience as camp leaders and activity heads.
The Trillium Childhood Cancer Support Centre is a medium-sized charity with total donations of $2.6m in F2015. Administrative costs are 8% of revenues and fundraising costs are 11% of donations, which falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Funding reserves of $793k (of which $17k are donor-endowed) cover only 37% of annual program costs, highlighting a funding need.
This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by Camp Trillium. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
