Camp Champions



The Camp Champions Celebration is an annual event in which supporters of ACA New England gather to celebrate the true spirit of camp and to raise funds that help bring the summer camp experience to the region's children in need.  100% of net proceeds benefit ACA New England's Campership Fund.


The 2013 Camp Champions Award was presented to Eliza Dushku, Actress and Activist, in recognition and appreciation of her efforts to provide the life-changing gift of summer camp through the Girls Program at ACA Accredited Camp Hale, a program of United South End Settlements.  Ms. Dushku  is the third Camp Champions Honoree. She joins the Honorable Thomas M. Menino, Mayor of Boston, who was honored in 2012 for his extraordinary work on behalf of children and families and June & Eliot Tatelman, 2011 honorees who were recognized for their inspirational work at Camp Miracles & Magic - a camp for children with HIV. 

The Camp Champions Celebration makes it possible to provide children in need from CT, MA, ME, NH, RI & VT the opportunity to thrive at summer camp. There is no greater gift than the gift of a summer camp experience!  Every child deserves to benefit from the powerful experience we call camp.
