President's Message

Dear OCA Members,

I would like to thank everyone who attended the Annual General Meeting and the Awards Dinner on January 20th. The election candidates' speeches were a highlight and I believe they provided insight into each of the candidates' areas of expertise. On behalf of the Association, I would like to thank all of the volunteers, who were recognized at the Awards Dinner, for giving so generously of their time and skills. I encourage everyone to join us for both of these important events next year. 


The Annual Conference was a great success! The speakers, food, and location were outstanding. A special thank you to all of the camps who sent staff to this event. The feedback has been very positive. Also I would like to thank the Conference Committee for all of their efforts in making this year's event such a success! 


In the near future, the OCA is offering two new FREE educational workshops which will be held at the OCA's office. 

Nutrition Workshop, Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
