Uniting Camp Leaders: Bridging Wisdom and Innovation Across Generations
Thank you to all who joined us at OCA Connects 2024 Conference!
It was wonderful to see delegates, exhibitors and speakers come together to learn, grow and network! As a professional association, the OCA strives to promote that working in the camp and outdoor education industry can be a lifelong career that requires on-going education, dedication, and passion. We are so grateful that you took the time to attend and participate in the conference. It was so special to be all together.
This conference was a direct result of delegate and OCA Member feedback from past conferences and as we mentioned, we want to keep getting better and better! We’re seeking feedback on OCA Connects 2024 Conference to continue to advance our professional development opportunities to best support our members. This is an opportunity to have your voice heard and if you didn’t attend the conference, we still want to hear from you!Complete the Survey

Jordanna, Tito and Rachel have a wide range of camp experience and are excited to be part of the continued growth of the OCA. A note from our co-chairs:
We are so excited and beyond grateful to be a part of putting on this year’s conference! The OCA conference is a very special time of year for all members, and the three of us have fond
memories from all of the previous conferences we’ve attended. Two big things we hope to accomplish as conference co-chairs are to make sure that the conference is relevant to people like you and the work that you do every day as camp leaders, and to ensure that we create opportunities for networking and connection amongst members. Coming out of the OCA’s 90th anniversary, there’s a lot of incredible wisdom in the minds of the camp leaders that have been working in camp for many years, and our goal is to unlock their wisdom in an engaging way while at the same time elevating and amplifying the voices of the next generation of camp leaders. We are going to work hard to make sure that delegates feel at home and would love your help in making that come true! Feel free to email email@example.com to get more involved!
