November News
President's Message

Dear OCA Members,

The fall  has been a whirlwind preparing for the Day Camp Workshop, the Annual General Meeting, the Awards Dinner and the Annual Directors Conference.

The Day Camp Workshop, held Friday, November 7th, was a great success for both the speakers and the delegates. I would like to thank all of the camps who attended the event for their support and would also like to recognize and thank the speakers for generously sharing their expertise. They are Mike Ennis, YMCA Western Ontario, Senior Vice President, Nancy Brown, Firstbrook, Cassie and Anderson Insurance Brokers, David McKeon, McKeon Associates Adjusting, Sari Grossinger, Camp Robin Hood & Camp Walden, Bev Unger, Peal Bell and Michelle Christopoulos, OCA Health Care Committee.

The 82nd OCA Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be taking place: 

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

3:00 PM
Sunnybrook Estates - McLean House
Academy of Medicine (Room)
2075 Bayview Avenue Toronto, Ontario M4N 3M5

Annual General Meeting materials will be mailed to all Members in the near future. Please join us for this important meeting.


The Awards Dinner activities take place right after the AGM. It will be held in the Main Ballroom on the main-floor beginning at 5:30 pm with a reception, followed by dinner and the awards presentation at 6:00 pm.

If you haven't already registered for the 2015 Annual Directors Conference, January 28 to 30, 2015, I encourage you to do so. The educational sessions, social events and exhibit hall have reached new heights. The exhibit hall is sold out with a waiting list. Furthermore, the 2015 Annual Director's Conference Guide will be posted on line for you all to review within the next week or so.

For those of you who will be having a Standards Visit at your camp in 2015, you will be informed in December.

These are very exciting times for the OCA. Please take the time to get involved with your organization and contact the office to find out how you can become involved.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
