CampCounts 2022 is the latest iteration of ACA’s annual business and industry research survey, which aims to support camp professionals in their operational decision-making and to support ACA’s advocacy efforts. Responses are anonymous and reported in aggregate by the following segments: program types offered (day, overnight, or other alternative programming), primary program type (50% or more day camp programming, overnight camp programming, or other alternative programming), and camp owner/sponsor (independent nonprofit, for-profit, municipal/government, nonprofit affiliated with another entity).

We had a lower than normal response rate this year, thus results should be interpreted with caution. What our research team did to account for the low response rate is described in detail in the report. Camp professionals should use the data together with data from local sources, including their own year-to-year trends, to guide decision-making. We ask journalists to reach out to the ACA Public Relations Team at before citing anything in this report verbatim. Context is extremely important in interpreting these data.
