Gilda’s Club offers ongoing, professional-facilitated support, networking and bereavement groups to our members. Adult groups run throughout the year, while child and youth groups are offered more sporadically, based on the needs of our specific community.


We offer a variety of educational lectures and workshops. Some sessions are very cancer-specific, focusing on such topics as cancer types, treatments and side effects and post-treatment information. Other educational pieces are more broad in conversation and, in the past, have included nutrition, skin care, will and estate planning and gut health.


Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka provides an opportunity to experience a broad rage of movement classes, including specialized classes for members on active treatment. Healthy Living doesn’t stop at movement classes. We also offer self-discovery, mindfulness and meditation programs.


Our social programming has proven to be some of our most popular activities. From smaller groups to larger community parties, these get-togethers are meant to build a sense of community and belonging for all our members. We warmly encourage members to invite their family and friends to our social events.
