Camp Kindle is an accredited oncology camp

Kids Cancer Care is committed to operating Camp Kindle with the best practices in the oncology camping field. We are the only Alberta cancer camp that is accredited by the following accrediting bodies:

  1. Alberta Camping Association
  2. Children’s Oncology Camping Association

The standards of excellence prescribed by these organizations are the standard operating protocols used at Camp Kindle for our oncology programs and our Camp Kindle rental programs. Look for the following camp accreditation logos to ensure the camp facilities and programs are operating with best practice for health and safety.

Medical care

Our programs are guided by a medical advisory committee, led by a pediatric oncologist. This committee is made up of physicians, nurses and other health care professionals in pediatric oncology.

Camp Kindle is equipped with a modern medical centre, where campers receive specialized care, daily medications or other routine medical procedures. There are two private rooms in the clinic to provide privacy for kids requiring treatment or respite. Located just outside Water Valley, Alberta, Camp Kindle is a 75-minute drive from the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary.

Kids Cancer Care strives to accommodate all registered families in the programs they choose; however, when space is limited we employ a priority system, which gives priority to children and families who are recently diagnosed, recently bereaved or who have never before attended the program. Thank you for understanding.

Kids Cancer Care is a place of belonging and acceptance for children affected by cancer and their families. We welcome all Alberta children and families affected by cancer — regardless of differences in physical or mental ability, gender identity or sexual orientation, cultural or religious beliefs, or ethnic origins. We realize that what makes us unique makes us remarkable. We make every effort to accommodate all requests from Kids Cancer Care families and strive to ensure that each child feels safe, comfortable, and supported regardless of differences.
