When: Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Time: 12:45 - 2:00 pm

Room: TBD

Cost: $25/person.  Register through ACA.

Join others from the Not for Profit Camp “world” and learn more about the exciting research that has been completed and tools developed from that research which are of value to all camps, especially those needing to document outcomes for potential funders. 

Members of ACA’s Research Team will provide an overview of what has been completed over the past several years, present the newest material and be available to respond to questions on the value of these tools and additional resources available for use.

A discussion on the purpose of the Not for Profit Council will also be held during this lunch program.

  • Facilitate communication among the not-for-profit membership of the American Camp Association
  • Serve as a vehicle for discussion of not-for-profit camp issues
  • Provide opportunities for development of leadership within the not-for-profit camp community
