OttawaSportsCAMPS.ca is the online home for the CAMPS Project. The Connecting Athletes of All Means to Paths in Sport Project is an initiative that provides free sports opportunities and transportation to youth living in Ottawa Community Housing neighbourhoods.
OttawaSportsCAMPS.ca provides a great resource to discover the Ottawa area’s best sports camps and programs. The organizations featured on this site not only provide exceptional sports experiences, developmental opportunities and loads of fun, they are also committed to giving back to their communities as CAMPS Project partners.
The summer camps or seasonal programs positions are offered by the sports organizations listed on this site, which receive advertising in the Ottawa Sportspage newspaper and on OttawaSportsCAMPS.ca in exchange for providing the opportunities at no cost to the OCH youth.
In partnership with the Ottawa Community Housing Foundation’s recLINK program, worthy participants are identified from the Britannia Woods, Rochester Heights, Winthrop Court, Morrison Gardens, Pinecrest Terrace, Michele Heights, and Confederation Court OCH communities. Our transportation provider, actKIDvity, shuttles kids to and from their sports activities.
The CAMPS Project functions under the guidance of the registered not-for-profit Ottawa Community Sport Media Team.
