How does registration work?

Spring into Summer registration packages have been priced to allow for camps and outdoor education centres to purchase a pass for the full program – which means unlimited participation for all your staff!

In order for your participation to be truly unlimited for your staff, we have removed our guest registration options – all you need to do is send the information to your team! The email associated with your registration is the email that will receive all OCA communications about Spring into Summer – they will be your Spring into Summer representative.

How do I get the information each week?

The OCA Team will send an email 10 days in advance to your organizations’ Spring into Summer representative. This will include the Zoom link and the program outlining each session and speaker.

Your organization’s Spring into Summer representative is responsible for sharing this information with your team.

I didn’t receive the information for the week – what do I do?

If you are your organization’s Spring into Summer representative, and have not received your program information 5 days before the stream date, please contact alex@ontariocamps.ca for assistance.

If you are not your organization’s Spring into Summer representative, please contact your representative. In case of an issue day-of, please email ocaeventhelp@gmail.com for assistance.
