Frequently Asked Questions | Refund Policy

In 2004, in response to the growing interest our youth members had expressed in hunting, fishing, conservation, and other outdoor pursuits, the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) initiated the Get Outdoors Youth Leadership Conference; ran in conjunction with the OFAH Annual General Meeting and Fish & Wildlife Conference. Every March Break, 80 youth members (ages 8-16) from across Ontario will get the opportunity to partake in activities that encourage their interest in the outdoors. This event caters specifically to encourage our youth members to become future stewards of conservation, and share our passion for hunting and fishing.

This three-day event has grown in popularity over the past decade, as the national award winning OFAH Get Outdoors program becomes increasingly recognized for being a leader in youth outdoor education. Our participants have expresses that they "had an awesome weekend, my favourite was learning how to shoot a shot gun on the trap range," or "wished that the weekend would never end." After the parents arrived to pick up their kids and heard about all of the exciting new experiences they kids had, many parents expressed that they "wish that there was an opportunity such as this when they were kids."

The OFAH is proud to host the 18th Annual OFAH Get Outdoors Youth Leadership Conference, at the Hilton Mississauga / Meadowvale Hotel in Mississauga on March 16-18, 2018, in conjunction with the 90th OFAH Annual General Meeting and Fish & Wildlife Conference.

Here's what to expect at this year's youth conference:

  • wild game feast
  • .22 caliber rifle range*
  • shotgun range*
  • archery range
  • free time at the hotel's indoor water park
  • Friday afternoon field trip!
  • Award ceremony
  • leadership initiatives
  • pizza party
  • special guest speakers
  • evening entertainment
  • evening dance
  • indoor campout
  • new friends and much, much more!

*Note: The .22 caliber rifle range and shotgun range are under immediate one-on-one supervision of qualified range officers.
