Markel’s Commitment to the Camp Community
Since 1977 Markel has been an ACA business member- demonstrating their commitment to help make camp a better and safer place for all.
Healthy Camp Study
From 2006 through 2010, Markel’s Mission Partner Sponsorship supported the Healthy Camp Study, a national injury and illness monitoring program conducted in U.S. camps. This project collected important benchmarking data about camper and staff injuries and illness in day and resident camps, and led to the development of prevention and intervention strategies.

Healthy Camp Monitoring and Education Program
Beginning in 2011, Markel’s renewed Mission Partner Sponsorship will support the ongoing needs of the camp community for injury and illness surveillance and prevention. The program will focus on providing electronic surveillance resources to camps and on-line education/professional development opportunities to continue to improve practices around camp health and safety.
