Summer camp is not a new concept, yet our children need camp now more than ever. Those who came before us understood the power of community, the healing qualities of nature, and the role of camp in youth development. At ACA, we continue to shine light on these benefits and more, seeking to ensure that every child knows the positive impact of summer camp. Join us as we take a look at the history of summer camp and the American Camp Association, celebrating the the path set before us as we prepare for the next 100 years.

"Camp helps us practice being people in the way that we hope the world will be when we grow up." — Tom Rosenberg, President/CEO
