We hope you can join us for a fantastic day of camp tours and the opportunity to connect with camp professionals in Washington State! We will visit Camp Don Bosco and Camp River Ranch, Girl Scouts (both in Carnation, WA) and then, after lunch, head to Camp Huston in Gold Bar, WA. Each tour highlights different programs and facility areas unique to each camp!

This is an open invitation to all ACA members and non-members; we encourage you to invite your emerging professional staff, program staff, and facility folks. This is a free event, but please RSVP by April 7.

Participants should bring a nut-free brown bag lunch.
