College & University Programs for Minors

This community is a unique group of camps and professionals who run and operate youth programs on college and university campuses. Whether you are an administrator, program director, or camp director that over sees one or many programs, ACA has resources that will be beneficial to you and your work. 

Camps on Campus Council

If you are collaborative, seeking to connect with peers, share ideas, educate yourself and your institutions, and improve risk management, health and safety, staff training, and program quality for youth on your campus - this group is for you.   

If you are new to ACA, this is a great place to begin building your network and become connected to others like yourself and what ACA has to offer. 

If you have been part of the Association for a while, your peers in higher education and in traditional camps need you to bring your knowledge and understanding of this unique setting to the conversation.

For more information, contact Tim Huchton at or 765-349-3539.

Tools and Resources for Managing Risk in Your Program

All programs carry a certain amount of risk exposure. Whether your program serves minors on campus, students who are no longer minors, or adult nonstudents, your college or university is responsible for the safety of the participants. These resources will help you identify and minimize areas of risk in your program. The American Camp Association is here to help you as you review your operations, procedures, and programs and identify areas were you would like to see improvement.
