20/20 Toolbox: Overview
Strategies for implementation of the 20/20 Vision include:
- Increasing outreach to camper participants, including those from diverse populations;
- Reaching out to the broader public and communities;
- Encouraging more camps and people who deliver "camp" — including diverse models of the camp experience; and
- Welcoming more camp and youth development professionals to participate with us in the ACA family.
In keeping with the toolbox concept, we are soliciting articles that provide camps with processes and systems on diversity-outreach related topics, such as how to increase diversity, how to serve new audiences, ways to market to diverse clienteles, tools for developing outreach strategies, how to find funding sources, how to be more inclusive of the broader public — the list is limitless.
As we reach out as a more inclusive organization and help camps broaden their horizons, we envision this series will also showcase camps that are implementing varied, unique, and successful outreach strategies and delivery. It is our intention to offer the readers of Camping Magazine the opportunity to learn about other programs and efforts that can be adapted for use in their own camps. Additionally, we are embracing a mind-wide-open view within the article series to include fairly boundless definitions of "the camp experience" and "diversity."
