Government Lobbying 

The Ontario Camping Industry has hired a lobby firm to advocate for Summer Camps that are being effected by the government orders resulting from the COVID 19 pandemic.  The restrictions on camps have extended past the summer months and have effectively closed our operations in the fall season (cancelled school trips and gathering restrictions).  We feel strongly that our federal MPs have the most influence and voice for our cause. 


Here are ways that you can help us lobby the government for more support for Overnight Camps:

  1. Write a letter:

    • Most effective as this shows you care to spend time to write a letter and get it into the mail- Send a letter to the Camp's MPs, Mark Gerretsen (Kingston and the Islands) and Scott Reid (Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston). Try to keep it to one page and reflect your personal experience.

  2. Write an email:

    • Effective as this shows you care enough to take some time to send an email- Send an email to the Camp's MPs, Mark Gerretsen (Kingston and the Islands) and Scott Reid (Lanark-Frontenac-Kingston).

Sample letters and email drafts can be found below (Click on the bottons).

We're not doing petitions at this time as our lobbying experts have said that those show up once at an office. It's better to have a flurry of communication rather than one communication with multiple names.
