Why Join ACA?

Collectively, ACA members impact 7.2 million campers and learners annually. ACA helps you make an impact in the lives of the children you encounter every day in your work.

ACA provides educational resources, research, policy work, outreach to parents, families, and other professionals to build safer, healthier, more fun environments where children and youth can become leaders, environmental stewards, and a healthier population.

“Camp gives kids a world of good.” By joining ACA, you make the world a better place.




My ACA membership tells others I keep up with the latest camp information. I joined because when someone thinks of ACA, they think of quality.
— Elizabeth Mosier, ISU student pursuing bachelors in recreation and sport management with emphasis in youth leadership
