Dear OCA Members,

Spring is just around the corner, which means we are all gearing-up for outdoor education programs, staff training and camp.

In a few weeks all Standards Visitors and Camps being visited in the summer of 2014 will be receiving their Standards packages. Camps are asked to please contact your Visitor as soon as you receive the package, confirm two visit dates (the second in case of rain or another occurrence), then call or email  the OCA office with your scheduled dates. 

If you have not registered to be a Visitor this year, click here to download a form and fax it to the office at 416-485-0422 .

The Health Care Committee and Counsellor Conference Committee are in the final organizational stages for their events. Please note the dates for each educational program and register your Health Care Professionals and your Camp Staff.

Kids In Camp  

                                         Kids in Camp Thanks OCA!


Thanks to Ted Cole's vision and drive to establish a children's camp charity, Kids in Camp (KIC) was formed in 2008.  Since then, hundreds of deserving children have been able to attend an OCA-accredited summer camp.  KIC wishes to express its sincere thanks to the OCA and its members for their strong support in the past year.  Thanks to you, in summer 2013, we sent 305 campers to 50 OCA accredited camps.  The children tell us how much they value this experience.
