About Camp Goodtimes
Camp Goodtimes is a summer recreation program that provides a unique summer experience for children and teens affected by cancer and their families.
Set in the scenic landscape of Loon Lake in Maple Ridge, Camp Goodtimes provides a safety-focused, fun, recreational program at no cost to participants. Camp Goodtimes is accredited by the British Columbia Camping Association and the Canadian Association of Pediatric Oncology Camps (CAPOC).
Camp Goodtimes has medical supervision and other supports on-site. Participants experience adventure, take on challenges, form lasting friendships and unforgettable memories. Many children and teens are empowered by the time they spend at camp. Many families are renewed by time away without the stress of coping with cancer.
In this video some Camp Goodtimes families share what Camp Goodtimes means to them.
