"Although I am only 14 years old, I can honestly say that some of the experiences I've had at #summercamp I will remember for the rest of my life. Some of the things that I've had the opportunity to do at camp most people will never do in their entire lives. In my opinion, summer camp is one of the best experiences a child can, will, or could have."

Because of Camp…®...so much is possible
Introduction
The American Camp Association is a community of camp professionals who, for more than 100 years, have joined together to share our knowledge and experience and to ensure the quality of camp programs. Just as our membership is diverse and our programs distinct, so are the children who come to us to participate in the camp experience. Through what we teach, the opportunities we offer, and the example we set, children become part of a sharing community.
