ACA Camp Business Operations Report: 2009

Improve Camp Business Operations

Access the most recent budget and finance data for camps. Questions this year included scholarship information, discounts, marketing strategies used, revenue sources, weekly fees, expenditures, profitability, and more. For ease of application, there are two sets of findings: one for resident camps and one for day camps. Each set (resident/day) includes:

  • Succinct narrative of the summary of findings
  • Contents page of all the break-outs for the data tables
  • Breakouts that include sponsorship, region, camper days, gross revenue, and profit margin
  • Appendix that provides information on the way the data were collected and analyzed

We suggest you start by reading the findings summary to get an overview of the data, then look at the more in-depth information provided in the tables. We have also created "Fact Sheets" that let you look at very specific data around type of camp and region. For example, let's say you are an agency day camp and you'd like to look at only other agency day camp information. Look in the "Bookmarks" column (left side) until you see "Agency". When you click "agency", you will see a series of tables that display just agency day camp information. Perhaps you'd like to compare your camp to other day camps in your region. Again, look in the "Bookmarks" until you see the various regions- click, and you'll see tables for just that region.
