option 3
Year-round Standards Training

Is your camp being visited this summer as part of the OCA’s Accreditation program?

Are you considering volunteering as a Visitor?

Do you want to update yourself on the new Year-round Standards?

If so, you’ll want to attend this interactive information session which will cover all aspects of Accreditation Visits. It will help ensure smooth and constructive Visits for both camp operators and Visitors.

Facilitated by: 
Matthew Bernardo, Camp Wabikon and Miles Villneff, Onondaga Camp

If you attend this workshop, you will not be required to attend Year-round Standards training in the spring. Bring your questions!
