ACA Tri-State Camp Conference March 20, 2015

The American Camp Association (ACA) held its annual Tri-State Camp Conference this week. It is the largest gathering of camp professionals in the entire world! The camp community comes together to participate in a variety of educational sessions–not to mention perusing an exhibit hall hosting more than 300 booths–to learn fresh and new ideas for the upcoming season. The Tri-State Camp Conference is an amazing opportunity for those looking to better the lives of children through camp.

Hi-Hills has been participating in the Tri-State Camp conference for over 20 years, and each year brings new and exciting opportunities. Our administrative team attends a variety of educational sessions over the four day conference. Each session is attended with the goal of bringing back new and innovative ideas. We reference the past camp seasons’ surveys before picking specific sessions to ensure the material collected is in congruence with the wants and needs of our families.

Some of the great sessions we attended this year included: “Why Parents Are Our Most Valuable Customer in the Camping Industry,” “New, Fast, and Effective Methods to Teach Staff to be Outstanding Leaders,” and “The Argument We Must Make: Camp Creates Advantages for School, College, Career and Life Readiness.”
