At Villages of Waterford, what we do matters.

We believe that our community is just as important as the homes we build. Making a difference in the community we serve is an integral part of who we are. 

As an organization, we believe that having a positive impact in the community is our responsibility, which is why we strive to actively support local charitable organizations to help create a vibrant, thriving community.

Childhood cancer changes lives. So does camp. Campfire Circle is a privately funded charity that brings laughter and joy to kids and families affected by childhood cancer. Year-round community, in-hospital and overnight camp programs deliver fun, friendship and a sense of community at any stage of a childhood cancer journey. Campfire Circle is often referred to as the social cure for cancer. It’s a place where kids play, grow and enjoy new experiences in a safe, welcoming environment. Our programs celebrate kids for who they are – not what they have. The joy and confidence gained from camp is a crucial aspect of our Campers’ health and well-being. Campfire Circle gives Campers the chance to meet other kids, families or Counsellors who’ve faced the same illnesses, had the same surgeries, or other Campers who know what it’s like to have a sick sibling. Camp restores a sense or normalcy, new found strength and hope.
