Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts. This is the theme behind #GivingTuesday — imaging a world built upon shared and radical generosity.
The American Camp Association (ACA) understands that philanthropy makes a difference in the work we do. 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 to build a world of belonging and growth.
Perhaps now more than ever, our world needs camp. The heart of the camp experience is built on a foundational expectation that we all deserve the opportunity to feel like we belong. It's about fostering an environment where every camper feels valued, accepted, and celebrated for who they are. In a world that often emphasizes differences, camps have been a sanctuary where diversity is viewed as strength.
But belonging is just the beginning. The true magic of camp is within our ability to cultivate growth. Camps are not just places of recreation; they are laboratories of self-discovery where young minds can explore, experiment, and evolve. It's where youth learn they are capable of more than they ever imagined, can overcome challenges, and can make a difference.
Summer camp professionals are the architects of these transformative experiences. They have the power to inspire and create an environment in which belonging and growth flourish. Together, as members, volunteers, and stakeholders of our shared success, ACA is a place to connect and thrive.
