Camp Goodtimes is an unforgettable, empowering experience for children and youth who have or have had cancer.

Camp Goodtimes offers an extraordinary camp experience in a medically-supervised, safe and supportive environment. We’ve been friendship-building and memory-making in Nova Scotia since 1985.
