The Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club (KSCCC) normally meets once a month at the Kanata Seniors’ Centre in Kanata, Ontario.  To find out more about the club and how to join click on About Us.

During COVID the Seniors’ Centre is closed so we meet online using Google Meet. Links to each meeting are posted here a day in advance of the meeting.

Help Required for Member Meetings

Do you think you could be a featured presenter at one of our camera club meetings?  Do you know anyone who might like to volunteer to present at one of our meetings?

At this time every year, the Executive of the Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club looks for presenters for Member Meetings for the following year. It gets more difficult each year to find speakers who wish to volunteer their time to speak to our camera club.  As we try to put together a series of  interesting and educational club meetings, we are always on the lookout for new materials and presenters.

If you know of someone, or if you would  do a presentation yourself, please forward an email to contact@ksccc.ca with details.

Thank you for your assistance

Meting date was corrected from April 2 to April 9.

Stephen by Jim Cumming

Stephen J. Stephen will be presenting “The Wildlife of Ottawa”, an overview of the wonderful and varied natural subjects that can be found in the greater capital region at our meeting on April 9th at 9:15 a.m.

Stephen graduated with a B.Sc from the University of New Brunswick and, after working for a couple of years, obtained his M.Sc. from Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Stephen had been doing 35mm film photography for many years when he moved to digital photography in 2005.
