  • Happy Intergenerational Day!

    Happy Intergenerational Day from all of us at OSCA! June 1st has once again been proclaimed "Intergenerational Day" in Ottawa by Mayor Jim Watson. Not only is this a day to recognize and celebrate the value of connections between generations, it is also a call to action for each of us to seek out new ways to connect with someone of another generation, particularly with those we think may be vulnerable and isolated at this challenging time.

  • Summer Camp Update: Week 1 and Sleep-away Camps Cancelled

    Summer Camp Update: Week 1 and Sleep-away Camps Cancelled As you know, the City of Ottawa directed all community/recreation centres to close as of March 16th to June 30th at the earliest. You can read more about the City of Ottawa Recreational facility closures here. Following this directive, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our first week of Summer Camps in 2020 scheduled to run June 29-July 3. Furthermore, the Ontario Government stated on Tuesday, May 19th that overnight camps are prohibited this summer. As a result, we are cancelling our sleep-away camps scheduled for July 27-31 and August 17-21.
