ACA empowers camps to create quality experiences that build a world of belonging and growth. ACA:

  • provides support and resources for the field of camp
  • focuses on diversity, equity, inclusion, and access to help ensure that all kids have a great camp experience
  • educates camps in key aspects of camp operation, particularly in areas related to program quality, health, and safety of campers and staff
  • supports parents in making decisions for their children by sharing our proprietary research, resources, and by accrediting camps
  • is the voice for all camps across the United States by promoting the educational and developmental benefits of a camp experience
  • provides updated funds development resources to help camps with fundraising
  • represents camp in Washington, D.C., and state houses around the country

ACA can do all of this through both the support of ACA member camps and through the generosity of people, foundations, and organizations across the country who value the power of camp. Please join in this important work with a gift to ACA. We are stronger together.
