**An ACA Affiliate Camp is one that pays affiliate service fees for their camp. Affiliate Camps receive special discounts for our enriching professional development programs. An Affiliate camp can then become part of the Accreditation process, which is the best evidence parents have of a camp's commitment to a safe and nurturing environment for their children. Camp professionals who are ACA members but whose camps are not affiliated may not take advantage of the individual member rate or sign up as an affiliated group.

 ***As a reminder, all registrants associated with your Conference Registration MUST be directly affiliated with your camp. Organizations that own multiple camps must register each camp separately. If you have questions regarding the Tri-State policy, please call our office at 212-391-5208, so that we may assist you with the registration process.

Cancellation and Refund Policies

All cancellations must be received in writing and sent to ACA, NY and NJ by February 8, 2019. Cancellations received by February 8th will be refunded minus a $150 administrative fee. Cancellations received after February 8th will not be refunded. If the ACA, NY and NJ cancels the event for which you have registered, the registration fee paid will be held on account for a future event or fully refunded if you prefer. ACA, NY and NJ is not responsible for any expenses incurred by you as a result of your registration, whether the event was attended, postponed, or cancelled.


Conference badges will reflect the camp name that each attendee registered with. We are not able to change your camp name.


We do not offer refunds for the conference due to weather unless the conference is directly affected and we are not able to operate. If the conference starts and we are operating as usual, we are not offering refunds. Unfortunately, weather where you are may differ from weather where the conference takes place. If there is a state of emergency where the conference is taking place or a weather emergency, we will determine refunds on a case by case basis after the conference has ended.

Children at the Tri-State CAMP Conference

We all love kids—that’s why we are in the camp business. However, for the safety of your children, there will be no children under 16 years old allowed in the vendor hall. We also ask that you don’t bring children to any sessions or the general session/keynote so that everyone can hear and learn without any disturbances.

  • Children are welcome to enjoy all public areas of the convention center and the Ben Appelbaum Lounge.
  • Please note that there is no babysitting available at the conference.
  • If you are breastfeeding/pumping and would like a private room while at the convention center, please contact before the conference for details.


Food is available for purchase throughout the convention center. There is a food court at the back of the exhibit hall and on the 3rd floor outside of the Ben Appelbaum Lounge.

If you have any dietary restrictions, please come prepared with your own food. This includes, but is not limited to: Kosher Food, Gluten-free, Allergen-free or Vegan.
