About Glen Bernard Summer Camp
Glen Bernard Camp is an accredited member of the Ontario Camps Association (OCA). The OCA sets operating standards for member camps, and GBC adheres to over 400 separate standards in the areas of: Health & Safety, Leadership, Food Service & Maintenance, Staffing, Programming, and Administration. Some standards duplicate government regulations, but frequently an OCA standard is higher. The document also includes areas not covered by government regulations. Every four years a representative of the OCA visits GBC to ensure compliance with each standard.
In 2005, GBC became a private school and has the authority under the Ministry of Education to grant high school credits. A representative of the Ministry of Education visits GBC every two years to inspect our program and procedures to ensure they comply with Ministry standards and the Ontario curriculum.

Adherence to these standards provides a safe, well-organized environment for all campers and staff.
