“Camping leaders who, over the years have blazed trials and built bridges in the Ontario Camping community so that others may follow more surely. They hold a place of special significance in the traditions & successes of the Ontario Camps Association. Any new paths chosen lead forward upon the ambitious course which they have charted. Any new bridges built rest upon the solid foundations which they have laid. As Life Members in our Association these people are also a permanent part of our camping lives. May we always see and recognize their contributions in our work. May we always listen and hear their counsel in our decisions.”
