General

  • Mission:
  • Camp Outlook helps youth develop their self confidence, inner strength, and capacity to succeed. We use a wilderness setting and a supportive social environment to facilitate learning and growth, with an emphasis on building self-esteem and reflecting on accomplishments.

  • Overview:
  • Camp Outlook offers full year programming that focusses on giving young people a chance to get outside, further develop their social skills, and have life-changing experiences in the wilderness! We do not require payment from youth or their families, and focus on trips with youth facing barriers. We are a small, completely volunteer driven grassroots charity in Kingston Ontario. As we have no salaried employees, all funding we receive goes directly towards running our programs. In the summer, we focus on extended canoe trips, primarily to Algonquin Provincial Park and occasionally Frontenac Provincial Park. Our summer staff undergo extensive training to prepare them for both the physical and camping skills required in a canoe trip, but also the 'soft' social and conflict resolution skills that help them effectively role-model and help facilitate learning for our campers.

  • History:
  • Camp Outlook was founded in 1970 by Ron Kimberley, who at the time was a medical student at Queen's University, and later in life became psychiatrist. Since its inception, Camp Outlook has always worked with young people facing challenges in an outdoor setting. Our organization consists of a Board of Directors, 2-3 Summer and 2-3 Winter Directors, and approximately twenty program staff at any given time.
