Coming Home and Seeing Old Friends at National Conference

The 2018 American Camp Association National Conference is here! Today, I’m delighted to join over 1,400 other camp professionals and dear friends for a fabulous week of winter camp down at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Our Board of Directors and National Council of Leaders are holding Association leadership meetings and camp directors, exhibitors, and presenters are flooding onto this expansive Spanish Colonial Resort à la Mickey and Minnie.

CampWire Podcast Episode #1 - National Conference Preview

A Family Conference

To be able to go to ACA's National Conference and feel so many people focused on the same goals that drive you, a group of people working toward a mission — it encourages so much growth. To be around so many driven people who say, "Yes, I care about education and our youth, and it starts with us," and to identify with this entire industry that is, simply put, a big family, is so rich and important. It is something not a lot of people my age, all of 22, have an opportunity to be a part of and feel. It is something I have trouble explaining, so bear with me.

New Opportunity to Meet With the U.S. Department of State

The U.S. Department of State will be participating in the American Camp Association National Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico on February 23, 2017 from 10:30 am - 11:45 am.
