The Otter Lake Management Committee (OLMC) was created in 2013 under the Heritage Area Commissioner with the mandate to ensure the camp meets necessary governance and a year-round outdoor camping venue that offers a wide range of youth development opportunities and experiences in line with Scouts Canada’s established youth programs, mission and values while protecting the Otter Lake Scout Camp (OLSC) property’s natural wilderness aspects.
