CampCon 2016

We are excited to be celebrating the 5th annual CampCon Event on May 22nd. CampCon was originally founded as the ACA Virginias Day Camp Conference in 2012. That first year we were joined by 50 colleagues from area camps and a tradition was born. In 2014, the event was renamed CampCon to reflect the sessions and content that was applicable to all programs not just Day Camp programs. Each year this event continues to grow with our highest attendance last year at just over 200 people.
