#CampNotCancer Campaign Launched


Great Blue Resorts and Pickle Barrel Restaurants raising funds to send kids to Camp Oochigeas

Great Blue Resorts and Pickle Barrel Restaurants have partnered to create a summer-long, online campaign, #CampNotCancer, to raise funds for, and to increase awareness about,  Camp Oochigeas, the camp for kids with and affected by childhood cancer.

Guests are invited to complete the activities page on the back of Pickle Barrel’s children’s menu and then snap a photo holding the menu and post it online with the hashtag, #CampNotCancer, which will enter them in a contest to win one of three Great Blue Resorts (GBR) three-night getaways.

There are more ways to give and to win: Please visit campnotcancer.org to learn more about Camp Ooch and make an online donation. Gifts of $5 or more will be automatically entered to win a seven-night getaway at any GBR location, plus a family feast at a Pickle Barrel Restaurant. A $5 donation will also earn 10 per cent off the cost of any reservation; 15 per cent off for donations of $100 or more.

About Camp OOCH

Founded in 1983, Camp Oochigeas (Ooch) has been providing magical camp experiences for children with and affected by childhood cancer. Camp Ooch is much more than a summer camp. Ooch is the only overnight camp in Ontario to offer onsite IV chemotherapy treatment and blood transfusions. Camp Ooch also offers year-round programs for children with and affected by childhood cancer in Muskoka, at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), various other paediatric hospitals, regional healthcare centres, and Ooch Downtown in the heart of Toronto. Through these programs, Camp Oochigeas provides fun and meaningful experiences to approximately 1,200 children with and affected by childhood cancer each year, at no cost to their families. Free to families, Camp Ooch is made possible by the generous support of donors and volunteers.
