Camp Kindness Day 2018

On July 24 2018, the camp community will be able to participate in Camp Kindness Day – a new social event that will highlight the practice of intentional kindness that happens every day at American camps year-round. 

We want to demonstrate to the world the great work that camps are doing to teach kindness in engaging, simple, repeatable and high impact ways that live on in the daily lives of campers and staff members when they return home.

More information will be available soon about this event and how your camp can participate.

2017 ACA, Southeastern EPIC Winter Retreat

The WNC EPIC Winter Retreat is an opportunity to really DIG IN to your development as a camp professional. In this 3-day, 2-night retreat, we will explore the personal and professional competencies needed to be a good leader and learn how to develop them in ourselves. This will be a journey into authenticity and personal growth.  We will develop concrete plans of how to pass along what we learn to our teams and staff members back at camp. It's Bob Ditter, in the trenches, live and in person!
