What and Who is EPIC?

EPIC (Emerging Professionals in Camping) is a group within the American Camp Association. EPIC New England is a regional affiliate and welcomes any members whose camp is in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island or Vermont. EPIC connects emerging professionals from around the country and strives to provide meaningful opportunities for learning and networking. There are no official EPIC "membership requirements"; anyone is welcome if the topic and conversations speak to you and can help you on your path to personal and professional growth!

 Why be EPIC?

2019 marks the inaugural year for EPIC New England. How cool would it be to be there at the beginning?! Think about, a group of like-minded and experienced people coming together from different “companies” to share ideas, concerns and best practices. In an industry where most of us work independently for the majority of the year (compared to our “real job” in the summer), we deserve this continued community! Also, we have a lot of fun!
