Camp Triumph Volunteer and Camp Opportunities

SEND A DESERVING CHILD TO CAMP

Who: Camp Triumph’s summer programs are for children and often overlooked and misunderstood population of children aged 7-16: children who have a family member with a chronic Illness or disability. To date, thousands have attended from across Canada.

What: An overnight summer camp providing opportunities for these children to experience new activities, relax, have fun, gain new skills, and build relationships and resilience with those who truly understand them.

Where: Malpeque, PEI

Why: Illness of one family member significantly affects the entire family, especially the children. The children we serve are vulnerable and possess significant feelings of isolation and anxiety. Our children are five to seven times more likely to have significant anxiety. Camp Triumph is something just for them. A chance for their needs to be recognized and met when they so often have to take a backseat to their parent or sibling. They try new things while building confidence, self-esteem, positive coping strategies, and resilience. They get to be in the spotlight for a little while.

Cost: FREE
