Welcome to the Kinark Outdoor Centre

Announcing KOC’s Camp at Home Program

KOC staff will be facilitating a series of regular programs accessible from your home! These programs will formally launch in May of 2021, with a series of trial programs and activities delivered between April 9 and 17, 2021. In developing these programs, the KOC has kept our program objectives in mind.

In this programming we aim to:

  1. Focus on strengthening family bonds through new and or shared experiences through fun activities facilitated by KOC staff,
  2. Improve participant’s sense of belonging in a supportive environment, and
  3. Most importantly, provide a break from routine.

Visit our Camp at Home program page for more information on choosing and getting registered for the right program.
