American Taxpayer Relief Act - Impact on Camps

When the American Taxpayer Relief Act (ATRA) was signed into law by President Obama on January 2, 2013, it included a number of extensions of small businesses tax incentives that could be utilized by camps. Some of those tax incentives have been extended through 2015. The tax incentives include:

Public Lands Use - Resources for Camps

Use of public lands and waters is essential for many camp programs.  It is estimated that at least 9 percent of all camps use public lands and waters for at least a portion of their program. ACA partners with government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels to achieve our common goal of increasing access to public lands for young people and of helping to inspire an environmental ethic among campers and staff.

Tax Incentives for Camps Who Hire Veterans

In 2001, Congress enacted a new law that amends the Internal Revenue Code.  Named the VOW to Hire Heroes Act - it includes tax credits for businesses that hire unemployed veterans. The law provides nonprofit employers a tax credit of as much as $6,240 for hiring a disabled veteran or a $3,640 credit for any veteran who had been out of work for more than six months. The hiring incentive is 65 percent of the value of the for-profit tax credit. Nonprofits can apply the credit against employer payroll taxes.

Fair Labor Standards Act - Applicability to Camps

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards affecting full-time and part-time workers in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments.

Radon Contamination - Regulations Applicable to Camps

Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers and an important national public health issue.  If your camp has buildings, you should be familiar with the issues related to radon.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) - Applicability to Camps

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990. The ADA is one of America's most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life -- to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services.

Pool and Spa Safety - Federal Laws Applicable to Camps

Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act

The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act (VGB) promotes the safe use of pools, spas and hot tubs. The act imposes mandatory federal requirements for suction entrapment avoidance, and it establishes a voluntary grant program for states with laws that meet certain minimum requirements as outlined in the Act. The VGB is being administered by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
