“Camp gives kids a world of good,”
and by joining OCA, you make the world a better place.

Since 1932, the Ontario Camps Association (OCA) has provided support for and promotion of Ontario summer camps for children from Ontario, across Canada, and internationally.

The OCA is a voluntary, non-profit organization whose Members are devoted to sharing information and ideas and maintaining high camp standards. Our community of camp professionals have, for more than 80 years, been working together to help ensure the highest quality camp experiences.

We have both day and overnight camps in our Membership that are privately owned, agencies, special needs, and religiously affiliated.

We also invite Individuals, Affiliated Organizations, and Vendors to join this our Association and assist us with improving all aspects of the camp industry.

OCA Camps serve over 500,000 children annually. The OCA assists camps in providing  positive experiences by offering conferences and workshops for professional development, providing educational resources, conducting research, and working with government officials to build safer, healthier, learning environments for children can.

Membership in the OCA indicates to an increasingly aware public that you and your camp are committed to maintaining a set of standards which are the signs of a great camp.  As a leading authority on youth development, the OCA works to preserve, promote, and improve the camp experience for all involved. Those affiliated with the OCA benefit from the collective knowledge and experience of all who belong by working collaboratively and proactively to effect positive youth development.

We welcome you to become a Member or Associate of the OCA and benefit from all that our Association has to offer!
