Camp Sites, Facilities, and Programs Report

The ACA Camp Sites, Facilities, and Programs Report: 2017 is an invaluable resource for camps interested in examining their business operations around programs, grounds, and facilities. Data for this report were gathered in November of 2016 in a survey of 1,350 camp owners and operators who were randomly selected based on stratified sampling to represent the 2,426 ACA accredited camps at the time of data collection.  An additional 336 camps from the New England Affiliate and 386 camps from the New York/New Jersey Affiliate completed the survey for reports specific to those regions.  Those results are available by contacting those affiliates directly; available here are the reports specific to the national sample.  A total of 446 camps from the national sample responded to the survey (33% response rate).

Information is available for camp:

  • camp property
