President's Message

Dear OCA Members,

Wow only 71 days before camp! I can't wait.

With all of the preparation for camp, Members still found time to come to the New Tradition is Good Nutrition Workshop February 24, the Infectious Disease Workshop held March 24, and the Campfire of Inclusion event honouring Jim McHardy held April 14.

You also will not want to miss the following Workshops:

The OCA Office launched a new database and online registration using Wild Apricot. Members have been sent their codes to be able to go into the Wild Apricot site to change/add their camp's information and to register for the 2015 Healthcare Conference. In August this site will also be used for Members to renew their Membership. Please contact the OCA office for any assistance you may need with the new online registration or for updating your camp's information.


In addition, we are excited to announce that in the very near future you will be provided, in a separate email, with information regarding the progress we are making with OCA's Marketing Project. 


There are so many good projects currently in the works with Transport Canada, The Temporary Foreign Worker Program, Crisis Response Resource Manual, Tripping Guide and soon to be added to the project list is an updated Healthcare Resource Manual.

We will endeavor to keep you posted about all of the projects as information arises.

Thank you for your time and attention to this information.
