Started nearly a century ago, the New England Camp Conference began as an annual meeting for members of the National Association of Directors' of Girls Camps (known today as ACA New England). In 1933, the CampEXPO was added to allow camping professionals a chance to see the latest and greatest in the industry.
Today, the New England Camp Conference and CampEXPO is the nation's oldest camping conference and the largest of its kind in the region, serving professionals from New England and around the country. The New England Camp Conference and CampEXPO sensibly brings dynamic speakers, established industry experts, and new ideas to the table for our community of over 800 camp professionals from 250+ camps in all six New England states - large, small, day, resident, independent, and non-profit. They come together to meet and network with others in the field while learning and gaining new skills they can bring back to their camps! Camping started in New England and so does camp innovation!
