Summer 2024

The American Camp Association is pleased to partner with The Daniel and Joelle Ashley Foundation (dba UltraCamp Foundation) to help provide camp opportunities for young people. ACA raises funds, and ACA and the UltraCamp Foundation work together to distribute camper scholarships to qualifying ACA-accredited camps across the United States.

Few tools exist that can so profoundly shape the future of children. Camp provides positive encouragement and fosters a sense of community as well as an outlook of social and environmental responsibility – character traits vital to a healthy, caring society.
