Through camping, kids from diverse backgrounds develop important skills such as self-reliance, problem solving, socialization and an appreciation of and commitment to the natural environment.


The CCA's goal is to provide information and services for the hundreds of camps across the country, the thousands of staff working in these camps and the many thousands of parents whose children experience the wonder of camp.


The CCA is here to serve you! For almost 80 years, the CCA has worked on behalf of Canadian camps to help grow, develop, and promote organized children's camping across the country.

The Canadian Camping Association is a nonprofit, national federation of Provincial Camping Associations. We are dedicated to the growth, development and promotion of organized camping for all populations in Canada.
