Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Joining the camp session

Our 2021 virtual summer camps will be delivered using Zoom video conferencing software.  Campers will receive a “Welcome to Summer Camp” email prior to the start of their registered summer camp outlining specific camp information, such as the unique camp link for joining their upcoming virtual summer camp.

We ask that campers please:
  • do not distribute this unique camp link, meeting ID or passcode to others for the safety of all the children in the camp session;
  • enter the Zoom camp session 5-10 minutes prior to the start of the registered camp; and
  • sign-in to the Zoom camp session using the camper's first and last name(s) used during registration. Camp counselors may deny access to those entering the session who are not listed on the camp registration list.

All campers and staff have the right to a positive and safe camp experience.  For this reason, campers must follow the Code of Behaviour and Online discussion rules outlined in our camp policies
