Well, look no further because OSCA offers a full day recreation program for PD days for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board, the Ottawa Catholic School Board, le Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est and le Conseil des écoles publique de l’Est de l’Ontario.

The program typically includes an out-trip (if numbers permit), games, and crafts.

General Camp Information

Registration for summer camps opens is ongoing and open until the Thursday before the camp start date. If a camp is full, you may place your child on a waiting list and you will be contacted if a space becomes available.

To register, log in to your account

Note: When registering, please refer to the grade your child will be entering in the 2017/2018 school year. You’ll notice we set our ages one year over and one year under most children’s typical grade ages. This is to ensure that parents can register for the proper camp if their children are a little bit older or younger than the grade age at the time of registration. For example, if your child is entering Gr. 3, he or she should be registered for Trailblazer camps, even if he/she is only 7 at the time of registration.

Refund Policy:

There will be no exceptions to the refund policy so please read carefully.

All refund requests must be submitted at least one week prior to the start of the camp. Therefore, you must submit the request by 9:00AM on the Monday the week before the camp is scheduled to begin.

  • Administrative fee for all camps is $25
  • Refunds will not be issued if it jeopardizes the operation of a camp.
  • Requests received after the deadline will automatically be denied.

Program Subsidies:

OSCA is able to set aside a small amount of money to subsidize spaces in programs. None of the funding comes from Municipal, Provincial, or Federal government grants.

  • Applications for subsidies will only be considered prior to registration
  • Full payment is required for all programs in order to register
  • Subsidy amounts - if applicable - will be issued upon approval of the application.

Please contact Christy Savage, OSCA’s Executive Director, for a subsidy application. If you have any questions about subsidies please call 613-247-4946 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
