Camp Got2Go

About camp got2go

Camp Got2Go is an overnight summer camp that takes place in Atlantic, Eastern, and Western Canada, for children and teens living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we also offer Virtual CampGot2Go for youth that cannot attend camp in-person. 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 2022 Update

Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is dedicated to continue creating 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 partner sites, to ensure the health and safety of our campers. We and/or our partner sites (Brigadoon Village, Easter Seals Camp Horizon, or Camp Wahanowin) may have to cancel your child’s acceptance or camp program as a result.
