As we head into the holiday season, I hope you will join us in lifting up the American Camp Association (ACA) and all we do for camps nationwide.
ACA understands that philanthropy makes a difference in our work. Gifts are direct investments in the health and well-being of our camp communities and go directly toward our mission and vision of empowering camps to create quality experiences that build a world of belonging and growth.
In the spirit of giving, here is how you can help ACA support the critical work of camp professionals who are transforming the lives of children and adults through camp thanks to your #GivingTuesday donation.
Donate to the Annual Giving Fund
Your contributions to the Annual Giving Fund will help support research, programming, and other functions to help keep ACA strong. By donating, you help secure the future of the camp experience for millions of children.

Share ACA's Message (in Your Own Voice)
You are the voice that shares ACA’s goals on the ground and in your community. You share the story about camp's positive impact on children, youth, and adults. Camp enhances social skills. It helps children get outside and unplug from today’s technology-driven world. Camp helps children develop a respect for nature and keeps them active, and they have fun while doing it.
Share a story of how you have seen and experienced the benefits of camp firsthand. Spread the word about the positive impact camp has had on the people in your life to all your friends and followers on social media. What starts with you has the potential to reach hundreds of people, which can make a huge difference.
