As an independent for-profit camp, the value of ACA membership is incredibly important. It allows us to have professional guidance, information, connections, and sooo much more. ~ 2015 survey respondent
Who is this free membership for?
This program was originally designed to help connect as many frontline staff (or counselors) as possible with their first professional association. However, we are happy to have you connect as many of your staff members and board members with ACA as you wish. Don't forget your unit leaders, team leaders, program leaders, midlevel staff, counselors, food service staff, health care staff, maintenance staff, and board members.
Collectively, ACA members impact 6.9 million campers and learners annually. ACA helps you make an impact in the lives of the children you encounter every day in your work. ACA provides educational resources, research, policy work, outreach to parents, families, and other professionals to build safer, healthier, more fun environments where children and youth can become leaders, environmental stewards, and a healthier population.
“Camp gives kids a world of good.” By joining ACA, you make the world a better place.
Many camps like to promote their accreditation status and their relationship to ACA. We encourage you to do this. There are specific words we prefer you use and not use when describing your accreditation or membership.
