Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Package

(The first in a series.)

Help to create an environment that builds capacity within the camp community to understand, accept, value, and honor the unique contributions of all people in our camps.  ACA hope to encourage camps to create and maintain an inclusive camp community that eliminates stereotypes, bias, and bullying based on differences that include but are not limited to age, gender, ability, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual identity, and socio-economic status.

Camps share in an important role to teach and to help young people make sense of the world around them. Counselors and camp professionals must enable campers to become critical thinkers and leaders who can understand different perspectives with empathy. This is more important than ever. Talking about race with children is an essential component of summer and year-round camp programming. 

This package includes seven courses and grants 8.5 continuing education credits through the American Camp Association.
