We make overnight summer camps more safe, well run, and connected.

Why Should Your Camp Become a Member of CANSPEI?

CANSPEI is dedicated to helping overnight summer camps in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island be the absolute best they can be! We believe that membership with CANSPEI is worthwhile for all camps, no matter the camp’s size, budget, or affiliation. Here are some of the valuable benefits to membership:

  1. CANSPEI membership enrolls a camp into a network of camps that pursue common goals, share information with each other, and participate in group training and learning.

  2. CANSPEI members have access to grant funding for new programs at their camp and for professional development.

  3. CANSPEI membership gives camps access to low cost training programs and certification courses in areas that camps can actually use, such as canoe & kayak instructor training and low ropes challenge course instructor training.

  4. CANSPEI gives free advertising and promotion for its members in its social media posts and other media releases.

  5. CANSPEI gives camps access to sector data and research on the amazing benefits of camping for children and teens.

  6. CANSPEI membership can give camps a discount with a number of camping industry suppliers such as insurance companies and pleasure craft operator certification companies.

  7. CANSPEI represents the views of our members in provincial licensing and regulation matters for the camping industry in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

  8. CANSPEI membership also gives a camp membership in the Canadian Camping Association (for accredited camps).
