About Camp Outlook:
Camp Outlook is a registered Ontario charity based in Kingston, Ontario, which encourages young people from 13 to 17 years old to develop their inner strength, self-worth, and capacity to succeed. We do this by by giving them the opportunity to participate in extended backcountry canoe expeditions free of charge. Campers go on trips for free, but we ask that all of our campers are referred to us by a social agency or school so we can be sure that we are offering our trips to youth who may not otherwise have the opportunity to go to camp. This might be because of barriers faced at home or at school, or simply because they could not otherwise afford to go on such a trip, and many campers qualify under more than one criterion. We are an entirely volunteer-run organization, and nobody, from our program directors to our trip leaders, are paid. This is the way we've operated since we were founded in 1970.
Be a CANOE TRIP LEADER with Camp Outlook this summer!
Camp Outlook is looking for dedicated volunteers to lead canoe trips in beautiful Algonquin Park with deserving youth - could that be you? THERE IS NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!!! We provide all the training, certifications, and experience for our volunteers to become qualified canoe trip leaders, along with room and board for the summer!
Founded in 1970 by a Queen's medical student, Camp Outlook is an all-volunteer charity providing free wilderness camping adventures for youth ages 13 to 17 experiencing barriers to the outdoors. Our campers come from a variety of backgrounds; we aim to provide positive environments where they can learn about themselves and build skills that can help them in their everyday lives. Outlook is as rewarding as it is challenging; you'll never forget this summer!
