June News
President's Message

Dear OCA Members,

June is here and camp is ready to go. Like most of you, this is a very busy time, but we can't wait for camp to start.

Just a reminder of the new information which has been sent to your attention: 
  • a newly revised Crisis Response Resource Manual (now on the OCA website's homepage bookshelf and available for downloading by clicking here);
  • information regarding the "Camp Marine Module", advising Members that they can go directly to the OCA website under Members' Info to find these details. Click here to download the module. *Please remember to contact the OCA with your training dates, the trainer's name and also each participant's name and birth-date, which are required by the government; and,

  • the new Toll Free number for the OCA office is 1-844-485-0425 and the 24-hour Crisis Support phone number is 416-708-8131.
**The OCA Board and staff members are continuing to work with The Connected Brand over the summer to complete the initial branding and marketing steps for the OCA and Accredited Camps. An email will be sent to your attention in the near future with current information.


If you have any information you would like to share with other members in the newsletter, please send it to heather@ontariocamps.ca before the first of each month.


If you have any questions regarding the Association, please let me know.
