At the Kinark Outdoor Centre (KOC), we offer two main program streams: Autism Programs, and Community and School Groups. In each of these streams, the KOC staff are able to individualize programs and plans to best support the goals, needs, and abilities of your family or group. 


The Kinark Outdoor Centre (KOC) uses an online registration portal called CampBrain for our Autism Programs. This platform helps to keep all of your information and documents in one place to save time during the registration process. If you are new to the KOC, it takes 10 minutes to complete your entire registration, including creating your login.

All of our cabins have a two-piece bathroom and can accommodate anywhere between 1 to 15 people per cabin depending on your family or group size.
