About CANSPEI

Our camping association, established in 1941, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting and serving the development of summer overnight organized camping in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. 

 

Our Mission

Our Mission is to support our member camps’ delivery of enriching camping programs for nurturing the health, wellness, and personal development of the children and young adults of our provinces.

We support and help through:

  • advocacy and promotion of the amazing learning and character building benefits of the transformational camping experience

  • the formulation, publishing, and promotion of safe camping practices and standards

  • the provision of education, training, and leadership development programs for our member camps' staff and volunteers in order to increase professional competency skills in our recreational sector

  • fostering continuous improvement and excellence in camp programming

Governance and Management

The governance and management of our association is guided by our by-laws as well as by our equity and harassment policy. To find out more about either of these, please click here.
