The USACampAssociation is built to help camps from a business and personal standpoint. Our mission is to maximize communication using technology to educate all involved in CAMP – and those who don’t realize they are already involved in what CAMP is!
To this point, we invite anyone interested in joining our Board of Advisors in this endeavor to not just support CAMP, but to expand it!
If you are interested in being part of our voluntary advisory board, please contact us!
