Camp Moves Me 2017

The All New Camp Moves Me!

In its first three years, The American Camp Association’s Camp Moves Me has raised more than $185,000 to send kids to ACA-accredited camps. Plenty of people joined the movement that sent more than 850 kids to camp. Now, we are taking Camp Moves Me to the next level.

Camp Moves Me is now the vehicle to send kids to YOUR ACA-accredited camp!

As an ACA-accredited camp, you now have the opportunity to use 90 cents from every dollar raised by your team on scholarships to send children to your own camp! October will be here soon. So now is the time to take steps to become part of Camp Moves Me 2017 — so you can move more children into your ACA-accredited camp!

Here's how to start!

Step 1 - Register your camp with the ACA Camper Scholarship Program

  • This is a one-time registration, so if you are already registered, move on to Step 2. 

Step 2 - Create your camp as a team on RallyUp.

  • Create yourself as a participant for your team as well.

Step 3 - Invite others to join your team

  • Invite staff, alumni, and parents to your team who would be willing to get sponsors and log their miles in the month of October. We have a template email that can be customized for you to send.

Step 4 -  Getting donors and pledges

How Does Camp Moves Me Work?

Through our partnership with RallyUp, you pledge to hike/bike/run/swim (get active!) a certain amount of miles in the month of October 2017. Then you solicit donations from those you know will support this important cause. (For example, a donor might pledge $1 for every mile you run. If you run 10 miles in the month, then the donor will give $10. Or the donor can also pledge a flat fee amount).

Not an Accredited Camp? No Problem!

You can participate as a team or as an individual even if you are not raising money for your ACA-accredited camp. Here's how:

  • Head to the Camp Moves Me 2017 campaign page, courtesy of our partners at RallyUp. 
  • FOR PARTICIPANTS/CAMPS/TEAMS: Click the register text link. Individuals can choose to participate on their own or as part of a camp. To learn more about registering and/or creating a camp, please check out our Registration Help page
  • FOR SUPPORTERS: Click the green Donate button and search for individuals, camps, or ACA. Find the participant, click Save and then the blue down arrow. You can then select your amount per mile or make a flat fee amount donation. From there, you can choose to leave a message of support, or donate anonymously. You will not be charged until the end of Camp Moves Me 2017
