2015 Ooch/POGO Survivor Conference

Camp Oochigeas and POGO are pleased to present the 3rd Life After Childhood Cancer Survivor Conference, to be held  the weekend of October 16-18, 2015 at Camp Oochigeas in Muskoka.  This unique event is designed for survivors of childhood cancer (diagnosed before age 18) now aged 19 years or older, and offers a combination of:

  • Educational talks on living well after cancer, presented by survivors and health professionals
  • Small workshops where participants can engage in group discussions about topics of interest to their health and wellbeing
  • Fun and relaxation – with onsite activities like canoeing, climbing, archery, arts and crafts, cooking and more, there’s something for everyone
  • And most importantly: the opportunity for childhood cancer survivors to meet others and connect in a warm and supportive environment!



About the 2013 event:
Camp Ooch and POGO last hosted the Life After Childhood Cancer Survivor Conference in October of 2013.  Just under 100 childhood cancer survivors of all ages and stages of life attended, and 100% of attendees surveyed reported that they would attend this event again.
