COVID-19 Resources

In the current turmoil of health and financial issues brought on by COVID-19, the Canadian Camping Association encourages camps, camping professionals and families, to look to their local Provincial Camping Association and Provincial Health Authority for the most up-to-date information.

We have compiled a list of resources to assist camps during this unprecedented time.
