Project Real Job, a program of the American Camp Association® (ACA), welcomes and appreciates video contributions from the camp field to help others understand the benefits and value of working at camp.

ACA is dedicated to ensuring that those represented in any contributed video have granted ACA permission to use uploaded content in its publications, promotional materials, and outside media.

By submitting this form, you are actively affirming that you are uploading content that you have created, that you own or hold the necessary rights to, or that you’re authorized to use, therefore granting full global distribution rights for the uploaded content to the American Camp Association.

Before submitting content to ACA, please take an opportunity to review your camp's photo and video release statement. Did your organization address the use of photos and video by ACA or media organizations working with ACA? Videos without releases will not be considered for use by the American Camp Association.
