AOTS Projects / Awards / Bursaries

The AOTS has a number of National Projects that it supports as well as helping to set up new ones that relate to organizations goals and objectives.

Camp Improvement Project

The National AOTS initiated the Camp Improvement Project in 2012 to support Canadian not-for-profit camps that offer youth camping programs as part of their mission. The National AOTS awarded 26 grants (total value of $74,591) to camps in 7 provinces. All grants were targeted to assist camps in achieving their mission as it relates to youth camping by improving camp facilities and equipment. The National Camp Improvement Project was terminated in 2018. No new applications will be accepted. We offer our thanks to the AOTS Men's Clubs & Men's Fellowship Clubs that made financial contributions to the project.

Observer On Tape

This involves putting the United Church Observer on tapes and circulating them to sight impaired persons who wish to receive them. These tapes are circulated at the same time as the Observer is mailed out and are available to anyone who requests them. This service has in the past performed through National AOTS by the Queen Street AOTS Club, Kingston. Due to the amount of work and only three AOTS members the Kingston group had to pass this project over to EASTMINSTER of Belleville.

The need was recognized in order to help men and the groups they are in to connect with each other and celebrate, support, and strengthen the many forms of ministry in which they are involved.
