Funding OpportunitiesWeb-based tool to assist camps in identifying potential grant sources. Unlike other grant-listing sites on the Web, th site specifically focuses on grants for which camp programs are eligible. All grants on the Web site are filterable by type, category, and location, helping you find potential funding fast.

This resource is just one way that ACA is striving to reach our goal of increasing support for the value of the camp experience (see our 20/20 Vision page for more details on our goals and Vision). We are committed to searching out federal and state government grants that might be applicable to the camp experience. We are also committed to identifying other types of relevant grants — corporate, foundation, etc. — and providing them to you in an easy-to-read, quick-to-filter format based on your needs.

West Virginia Sales Tax: The ACA Virginias Section Board has requested clarification of the Sales Tax regulations for summer camps as outlined in Publication TSD-375. The reply from the WV Department of Revenue and applicable sections of the Consumer Sales and service Tax and Use Tax Regulations may be found through these links. West Virginia camps may want to discuss their tax responsibilities with a tax accountant or tax attorney based on these documents.

Camp Nurses: The website of the Association of Camp Nurses offers helpful articles for camp nurses. Camps may advertise nurse vacancies by joining ACN and paying an advertising fee. Website: www.campnurse.org.
