Leucan offers sociorecreational activities to its member families year-round to counter the isolation brought on by cancer. All Leucan activities are supervised and respect the energy levels and physical capacities of young people, helping them to boost their self-esteem, which is often affected by the disease.

The most eagerly awaited event of the year is certainly the Leucan-CSN Summer Camp, the only family summer camp in Quebec specifically for children with cancer.

On the weeks of July 23 and 30, nearly 100 families took part in the Camp and enjoyed a moment of family respite at the Manoir du Lac Delage.

Many activities were on the agenda: mountain biking for dads, paddle boarding for moms, escape game for teens, rallies, giant board game tournaments, crafts, bubble soccer, evenings with a singer around a campfire, and more!

The mother of Noah, a young camper who was there with his parents and two brothers, told us how much the Camp has benefited her family.

” The Camp is a wonderful way to get away from our hectic daily lives. With three children, one of whom is in treatment, we don’t get many opportunities to take a family vacation. A week of pure happiness where we were able to get together in a peaceful, gentle atmosphere!”

An activity made possible by the CSN

The Leucan team wishes to express its deep gratitude to the dedicated members of the CSN, whose invaluable commitment is demonstrated through countless fundraising initiatives to finance the Leucan-CSN Summer Camp. Over the past 27 years, the partnership between the CSN and Leucan has raised $4.5 million for the cause of children with cancer.

With a view to broadening and energizing their commitment in 2023, these exceptional partners launched an innovative winter fundraiser: the Marche-don, Cours-don.

This initiative brought together more than 380 participants from all corners of the province, all united in a common effort to raise funds for the Camp. Thanks to the solidarity and exemplary commitment of CSN members, the first edition of this initiative was a great success, raising over $135,000 for the Leucan-CSN Summer Camp.
