Convention & CampEx offers campground owners, managers, operators and staff several days of training, networking and a vendor trade show in November of every year. One of the most valuable benefits of attendance is the learning from and relationships built with other campgrounds and suppliers.


We are excited to announce that we will be hosting Convention & CampEx at the beautiful Kingston Waterfront Holiday Inn from November 19, 2023 to November 22, 2023. This year's theme is New Era, New Us. We are building an agenda with high level keynote speakers and consructive sessions to help you as business owners continue to succeed and grow with various perspective lenses in regards to inclusivity and diversity.

Please note: The Camping In Ontario team is disappointed to announce that we will no longer be executing a Youth Convention this year due to lack of interest and cost. We do apologize for this inconvenience as we do understand that the Youth Convention is a great opportunity for your children to network and learn. If you have any questions about this decision, please contact Jenn at events@campinginontario.ca or Alexandra at aanderson@campinginontario.ca
