HELP US HELP LOCAL SPORT!
The Ottawa Community Sport Media Team is an incorporated not-for-profit organization committed to celebrating local sports success, and supporting access to organized sport in Ottawa.
The CAMPS Project is our signature program to help build community sport. Thanks to partnerships through our newspaper, the Ottawa Sportspage, the Connecting Athletes of All Means to Paths in Sport Project provides free sports opportunities and transportation to youth living in Ottawa Community Housing neighbourhoods.
Watch our introductory video above or see ottawasportscamps.ca/about-us for more on the ins-and-outs about how the program works.
Currently, the CAMPS Project operates primarily as a summer camps initiative. Aided by our new partnership with recLINK, we now want to keep participants involved in developmental sports programs throughout the year, and put them on the path to excellence in sport – whether that be shooting for a university sports scholarship, or keeping active and becoming the next generation of sports leaders in our community.
Your contributions will help cover participants’ transport costs, program expenses/admin, and fund advanced athlete developmental opportunities, to enable local youth from social housing communities to reach for their sports dreams.
Thank you very much for your support in helping us to help local sport!
