Since 1933, the Ontario Camps Association (OCA) has played an important leadership role in promoting and encouraging children and youth camping in Ontario. The OCA is a voluntary, non-profit organization that draws its membership from camps, individuals and like-minded organizations and agencies, all devoted to maintaining high standards for organized camping, and to sharing information and ideas that maintain these standards.
The OCA takes pride in our history while positively looking forward to our future. We hope that you find everything you need on our website.
The Ontario Camps Association supports, advances, promotes and accredits camps throughout Ontario.
