Camp Got2Go

Virtual Camp Got2Go

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada has been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. As the health and safety of our campers is our number one priority, we have made the decision to shift our 2020 in-person summer camps to a virtual CampGot2Go taking place August 3rd - 6th. 

Virtual Camp Got2Go is an exciting opportunity for campers to engage with each other over the full summer, with the bulk of the participation during one week of Camp Got2Go! The week of Camp Got2Go will include daily opportunities to build connections with their cabinmates, to participate in daily program blocks, and some fast-paced and silly programming full of traditions and the things that make Camp Got2Go special! Each registration also includes participating in a Pursuit Week later in the summer, where campers can dive into the program area which interests them most, try new things, and learn valuable skills. Our Virtual Camp Got2Go program, like all of our programs, will be full of meaningful connections, skill development and exceptional fun!

We have once again collaborated with Brigadoon Village to bring you this programming. 

Registration is now closed.

Camp Got2Go:


Camp Got2Go is an overnight camp for children and teens living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. It 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.

We have three exciting summer camp locations in Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia Canada and a fall weekend camp in Ontario.

Camp Got2Go is an initiative of Crohn’s and Colitis Canada and has been made possible with funding from Janssen Inc. and other supporters.
