Mission

Our Camping Association, established in 1941, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting and serving the development of summer residential and organized camping in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. 

Our Mission is to support our Member Camps’ delivery of enriching camping programs for nurturing the health, wellness and personal development of the children and young adults of our provinces.

We support and help through:

  • advocacy & promotion of the amazing learning and character building benefits of the transformational camping experience
  • the formulation, publishing and promotion of safe camping practices and standards
  • the provision of education, training and leadership development programs for our Member Camp’s staff and volunteers, to increase professional competency skills in our recreational sector
  • fostering continuous improvement and excellence in camp programming
