Camps on Campus
The fall semester is well under way. We hope that you had a great summer season and are already planning your next year.

New Director Orientation

Do you have a new director or administrator joining your camp program this year? Consider sending him or her to the New Director Orientation! NDO is a comprehensive full-day course for seasonal or new camp directors, assistant directors, program directors, or persons that have been in other administrative positions and are considering directing a camp. ACA’s NDO course helps directors and supervisors develop the skills they need to be effective leaders for a camp program. The course covers five critical areas: camp management & leadership, risk management, camper behavior, staff training, and staff supervision. 

This year ACA is working with universities across the country to host New Director Orientations in conjunction with a Camps on Campus gathering. If you are interested in hosting one of these events on your campus, let us know at
