Biographical history

The British Columbia Camping Association was established by Gertrude Moore in 1940. An affiliate of the Canadian Camping Association, the BCCA embarked on activities to fulfill its constitutional objective of setting camping standards and safeguards. Accreditation services for campsites, counsellor training and directory publication have been primary services of the association, which has worked in conjunction with the United Way and other charitable organizations.
