Have you ever had an incident on a camp trip that made you shake your head and say, "What was that trip leader thinking?" In this April 22 webinar, led by Ariella Rogge and Elizabeth Rundle of +Sanborn Camps, learn to design a training that demonstrates and supports your camp's "best practices" — for both new and experienced trip leaders.

Great article on why nature is so important for kids:
Experience and explore the great outdoors with your child — it's good for her!

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.
