Camp NAC Director Speaking at 2022 ACA Tri-State Conference
American Camp Association (ACA)
The American Camp Association is a community of camp professionals who, for over 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.
As an organization we value the world, the people who live in it, and the contribution each individual can make. These are not separate values, but concentric circles. The values that are important to us as an organization are the same as those we strive to instill in the children we guide.
The American Camp Association (ACA), New York & New Jersey division, is home of the largest camp conference in the world — with over 3,300 attendees and more than 300 vendors passionate about the camp experience, this is the one camp conference you never want to miss.

“Incorporating Wellness Into Camp”
On Tuesday, March 15th, 2022 from 8:30am-9:30am, Camp NAC Direction will be presenting to conference attendees on “Incorporating Wellness Into Camp.”
In today’s society, self-care for kids is just as important as it is for adults. Through camp programming, children and staff learn to not only be independent, but they gain social skills, confidence, self-esteem, and creativity. Children and adults are learning ways to deal with day-to-day stress and anxiety in their own way – but finding healthy ways to deal with things is important now more than ever. Teaching kids and staff self-care can improve their overall mental health and well-being. It’s time to get passionate about providing the community with programs that teach children and staff that a healthy body starts with a healthy mind.
Participants will learn how to adapt programming to include wellness initiatives.
Participants will learn how to train staff to support wellness initiatives.
Participants will learn how to view campers and staff as a whole.
