Mission

Our Camping Association, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting and serving the development of summer overnight 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

The Camping Association of Nova Scotia is pleased to recognize the financial support of the Province of Nova Scotia, through the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, for our Association’s Mission and programs.  We are pleased to work in partnership with the Province of Nova Scotia to develop and promote our recreational and cultural resources for all Nova Scotians.
