We're interested in sending our child to camp- but where do we even begin?

Although there are camp programs which primarily attract Indiana residents, many camps in the Indiana section welcome campers and staff from many states and countries each summer. Whether you are looking for a day camp, resident camp, multi-week adventure or a travel experience, you will find a member camp to fit your need. All of them adhere to the high standards of the American Camp Association and will provide a warm and memorable experience for your child. Sometimes choosing a camp for your child can be a difficult decision. To look at some helpful tips for making this decision, visit En Español también.


I see some camps are accredited- what does this mean?    

ACA Accreditation means that your child’s camp cares enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.
