ACA Announcement of New Chief Executive Officer

After a comprehensive search process, the Board of Directors is pleased to have found the best individual to assume leadership of the American Camp Association® (ACA). I am delighted to announce that Tom Rosenberg has been appointed chief executive officer of ACA. His first official day as CEO is October 4, 2016.

As you know, Tom Holland resigned as ACA’s CEO to pursue his and his wife Catherine’s dream — to own a camp of their own. We are pleased and excited to have found a very worthy successor to Tom — a successor perfectly suited to lead ACA into the future.

Introducing Ugly Mugz Lidz

Ugly Mugz were introduced to the ACA in February at the National Conference in Atlanta.  They were loved by the group and found new homes all over the US. Ugly Mugz are a nearly indestructible all-purpose vessel for hot and cold drinks and backcountry meals.  Ugly Mugz are BPA free, dishwasher safe, and Made in America.

Some Ugly Mugz have accompanied outdoorsy folks for over 30 years of expeditions.  They just get better with age as years of brands, etchings, and customizations are added.
