About camp got2go
Camp Got2Go is an overnight summer camp that takes place in Atlantic (Nova Scotia), Eastern (Ontario), and Western (Alberta) Canada for children and teens living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Camp provides kids a once in a lifetime opportunity to interact and connect with others facing similar challenges. Living with these diseases can make kids feel isolated and alone, and having a camp just for them can help build confidence, foster new relationships, encourage independence, and create opportunities for self-discovery.
Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is dedicated to creating the magic of camp by connecting campers from across Canada. As we prepare for the 2023 camp season, Crohn's and Colitis Canada continues to observe the COVID-19 pandemic and the developments of provincial health guidelines. We are working closely with the Crohn's and Colitis COVID-19 and IBD Task Force and our partner sites to ensure the health and safety of our campers. We and our partner sites may have to cancel your child’s acceptance or camp program as a result.
Crohn's and Colitis Canada covers the cost for each camper who is selected to attend Camp Got2Go. All Camp Got2Go programs operate on a 'pay what you can system'. We encourage families to contribute as much as they are comfortable with in order to support this program and its future. If families opt to make a donation, Crohn's and Colitis Canada will pay the difference owed on their camper's program fee. All camp fees are subsidized thanks to our partner sites and their contributions to our camp programs. The "pay what you can" prices will reflect these subsidies.
