And The Winner For Best Camp Program Is…

Last Updated on

Do you watch the Academy Awards?

How cool would it be if there were and Awards Show for camps? Hey ACA, let’s start something here, huh.

Here are the categories I would like to see:

  • Best Camp
  • Best Director
  • Best Program Director
  • Best Specialty Camp
  • Best Day Camp
  • Best Residential Camp
  • Best Travel Camp
  • Best Male Unit Leader
  • Best Female Unit Leader
  • Best Male Counselor
  • Best Female Counselor
  • Best Activity Specialist
  • Best Theme Week
  • Best Website
  • Best Logo
  • Best Overall Marketing
  • Best Theme Meal

Can you think of any other categories?

Maybe there’s no awards show for camps (yet!), but we should all strive to be the best. So this summer imagine that there is an Academy Awards for Camps and you are trying to get nominated.

Be Award worthy!


  • Call the award the “CAMPY”

    Have a celebrity win the lifetime achievement award – someone who went to camp and is “kid” involved… Hillary- Bloomberg- Michelle Obama – they would be thrilled to be honored.

    Have the award show at the Hilton. Every camp HAS to take 2 tables. Make it a camp-funky affair.

    MC’ed by Regis or Matt Lauer, or Meredith or Derek Jeter —etc. What great publicity this would generate..

    Every participating camp (with an entrance fee) would vote on each category ( not allowed to vote for their own camp entrants) ..

    There should be separate categories for Day Camp/sleepaway/ for profit/not for profit.

    Let’s do it!!!
