The only summer camp in Quebec specifically for children with cancer and their families

Leucan is proud to announce the 2024 edition of the Leucan-CSN Summer Camp. Families whose child has been diagnosed or has had a relapse in the last three years are invited to come and enjoy a memorable stay at Camp Carowanis.

The Leucan-CSN Summer Camp is the perfect opportunity to relax, enjoy a moment of respite and recharge your batteries. Established in 1985, the camp was renamed in 2001 to reflect the partnership established with the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN), which finances it through several fundraising activities.

Each year, the camp welcomes children with cancer between the ages of 0 and 17, whether they are newly diagnosed, in treatment, in remission or in recurrence, as well as their siblings and parents, and bereaved families.

Several employees, volunteers and a medical team are present to ensure the smooth functioning of the camp and to attend to the needs of the children. Around 70 families will enjoy a moment of respite this summer.

All eligible families will receive an invitation by email in the spring.
