2014 Conference Recap


It was great to see so many old friends AND to meet so many new ones at our 93rd Annual Conference in Manchester, NH. The same goes for the session presenters, sponsors and the vendors in the CampEXPO. Thanks go out to the vendors who created such an amazing marketplace for us to explore! It was full of brand new and tried and true goods and services that camps need and want. Michael, Chris, Anthony, and Steve, you each helped us focus on timely and important topics.  We’re so appreciative of all the presenters; you are the heart of what we provide to camp professionals and staff. The volunteer power from an enormous number of you was equally impressive. Thank you ALL. Really, we nearly blew the roof off the Radisson with the energy created by New England’s summer camp world as we learned, shopped, played and connected.

It was great to have so many camp people sharing the conference experience. We are hoping to get feedback from as many of you as possible. With all the changes to the schedule and several new features rolled out at this year’s conference it so vital for us to hear what worked for you and what didn’t. Please complete our conference evaluation if you have not yet had a chance to do so. Planning for our 94th annual conference is already underway; your input is necessary and welcome.

It was great to have you with us!
Bette Bussel
Executive Director
