Designed for kids affected by cancer, Camp Kindle meets the needs of the whole family at each stage of a cancer journey — from diagnosis to treatment. The camp’s staff and volunteers are fully qualified and trained to meet the unique needs of young people affected by cancer.
The Calgary Flames Foundation made a $1 million commitment to help build the Kids Cancer Care Foundations’ Camp Kindle. The Flames Foundation continues to raise funds to fulfill this commitment.

For more than 30 years, the Calgary Flames and Flames Foundation have embraced the Alberta Children’s Hospital and the children and families who rely on its care. Special events include the annual Townsend Tigers hockey game and personal patient visits by Calgary Flames players, as well as donations and volunteer support.
In addition to walking alongside families in the final days of an end-of-life journey, Rotary/Flames House provides much needed respite care. This temporary round the clock care of children gives families the rest and renewal they need. Day programming includes activities like music therapy, pet therapy, school programs and day trips for patients, parents and siblings.
