    Natural Selection - A Fun Read - For Campers and Camp Directors!
    Natural Selection is an excellent cross-over book for adults and kids. Both campers and directors will love this book! Itís impossible to put down. This is a good book to mention to campers at group meetings.

    Credit Cards Makes Good Business Sense for Summer Camps
    Credit and debit cards and the simultaneous decreasing use of cash and checks are providing opportunities for small-to-medium size organizations, like summer camps. Increasing payment options is one of the most simple and cost-effective actions to help strengthen the competitive edge and improve the bottom line.

    Should Your Camp Serve as an Evacuation Center?
    As happened in 2005, camps may be called upon in times of emergency to serve as evacuation centers. In preparation for future situations, the ACA shares with camps a list of important questions that camps should consider prior to agreeing to serve as evacuation centers.

    Camp Cancelation Insurance
    Is your campís income protected if a camper cancels 2 weeks before camp starts?

    Parents have already paid the tuition and you have already spent the money on staff and equipment. This puts you in an awkward situation because you want to refund the money to maintain your relationship with the camper but donít want to lose their tuition money. Protect yourself and your campers with Summer Camp Cancellation Insurance.
