Camp Got2Go

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.

Camp Got2Go 2023 Update

PLEASE NOTE: Our website will be updated soon with information on our 2023 camp season.

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is dedicated to creating the magic of camp by connecting campers from across Canada. As we prepare for the season of Camp Got2Go, we continue 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.
