The only Fishing & Hunting Kids' Camp of its kind in Ontario
Camp open to youth ages 8-16 | Cost: $375 + HST
Each summer the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) invites youth from across the province to put down their cell phones, video games, and turn off their televisions for the opportunity to experience the only camp of its kind in Ontario. This camp gives today's youth first hand exposure to our rich, outdoor heritage and encourages them to Get Outdoors!
Over the past five years, this camp has filled up in a matter of minutes on registration day. Back by popular demand and with the stellar support of our volunteers, the OFAH Get Outdoors Summer Leadership Camp will again have a total of 240 spots for youth ages 8-16.
The OFAH Get Outdoors summer camp puts an emphasis on promoting our outdoor heritage. Check out the summer camp video featuring the high energy activities each camper experiences. Enjoy and Get Outdoors!

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 13th Annual OFAH Get Outdoors Youth Leadership Conference, at the Hilton Mississauga / Meadowvale Hotel in Mississauga on March 17-19, 2017, in conjunction with the 89th OFAH Annual General Meeting and Fish & Wildlife Conference.
Here's what to expect at this year's youth conference:
*Note: The .22 caliber rifle range and shotgun range are under immediate one-on-one supervision of qualified range officers.
Youth education and conservation programs like Get Outdoors is only made possible thanks to the support of the OFAH's more then 100,000 members, subscribers and supporters, and 735 member clubs, across the Province of Ontario.
