The Resident Camp Tours and Conference, which takes place every fall, offers attendees a chance to tour overnight camps in a particular region to experience how other organizations manage their programs and facilities.
ACA, New England and ACA, New York & New Jersey are pairing up for the 2019 Resident Camp Tours and Conference and heading to Maine from September 10 - 12, 2019!
These tours offer attendees a chance to visit six overnight camps in just a few days. This year's tours will be hosted by Fernwood Cove, Camp Micah, Camp Mataponi, Camp Sunshine, Tripp Lake Camp, and Kamp Kohut.
This is a great opportunity to see a variety of camp properties, experience how other organizations run their programs and facilities, re-energize by networking with peers, discuss lessons learned and hot topics from the past summer, and gain new ideas as your off-season planning begins.
The registration fee includes two dinners and two lunches. Travel and lodging are not included.
Cost: $199/member; $225/non-member
