PARENTS

Through camping, kids from diverse backgrounds develop important skills such as self-reliance, problem solving, socialization and an appreciation of and commitment to the natural environment.

RESEARCH

The CCA's goal is to provide information and services for the hundreds of camps across the country, the thousands of staff working in these camps and the many thousands of parents whose children experience the wonder of camp.
