Through camp scholarships, ACA has sent approximately 800 children to camp, children who otherwise would not be able to afford the life-changing experience. However, to achieve ACA's 20/20 Vision of 20 million youth attending camp by 2020, we need corporate and foundation support to help us move our mission forward to make camp available to children from lower-income households.
