OFAH Get Outdoors Program

Every year hundreds of youth aged 8-15 from across the province put down their cell phones, video games, and turn off their televisions for the opportunity to experience the most exciting program in Ontario. This program provides youth with an alternative to digital entertainment, by putting an emphasis on our traditional outdoor recreational activities.

It is the only fishing and hunting youth program of its kind in Ontario! Visit www.getoutdoors.org for more information.

Testimonials

What Participants are Saying

“Just wanted to thank the camp staff and behind the scenes admin people for running a great summer camp last week, my son loved every second of it while he was there. Especially the fishing. Keep up the great work!”

Ryan M.

Parent

“This camp is so much fun! I loved learning about fishing and hunting – my uncle hunts, but I learned a lot! I’ve met so many new friends, some from other schools – our favourite part was the outside games and archery.”

Sadie M.

Age 11

“My favourite part of day camp was the water games we’d play on hot days. My counsellor also loved to fish so he shared lots of fishing stories with us. I almost caught the big bass in the pond! He let go of my hook as I brought him to shore… but I saw him!”
