Biography / History

In 1900 A.L. Cochrane established the firstprivate camp in Ontario. By 1925, the number of private campsin Ontario had increased to only six or seven. The camps establishedduring this time period (1900-1925) were mainly for boys overthe age of thirteen. Co-ed camps were unheard of at this time.As of 1925, the private camps were making headway in their developmentand agency camps, such as the Y.M.C.A., were opening up acrossthe province. The leaders and directors of these camps, wantingto keep abreast of new trends, began to regularily attend theAmerican Camping Association conventions, due to the absence ofa Canadian or Ontario camping association. This situation, althoughhelpful to the evolution of camps in Ontario, was not ideal. Issuesrelevant to Canadian camps, and camp leaders and directors, werenot being addressed by the American association. As a result,the camp leaders in Ontario decided to form their own group. Inthe first few years, the meetings were informal, and held in privatehomes. The first members were A.L. Cochrane, H.E. Chapman, MaryEdgar, Mary Hamilton, Fern Halliday, and Taylor and Ethel Statten.One of the main topics of discussion centered on the need fora camping association in Ontario. In 1933, this group of privatecamp leaders and directors formally founded the Ontario CampingAssociation. Taylor Statten was made the first chairman of theAssociation. It was decided by the founding members that the Associationwould not just be for private camps, but would be open to anyoneengaged in any aspect of camping. The interests of the foundersof the Association encompassed the development and maintenanceof high camping standards in the field of camping for childrenand an appreciation of the wider aspects of the camping movement.They believed that through discussion and consideration of commoncamping policies and problems, and by the mutual exchange of ideasand knowledge, better camping would be achieved. The Ontario CampingAssociation was responsible for the development and implementationof standards for Ontario's childrens camps, and, in 1941, in conjunctionwith the Provincial Department of Health, made the licensing ofall camps mandatory. The headquarters of the Association are locatedin Toronto, Ontario.
