TOPIC FOR NOVEMBER: Staffing – on the heels of the ACA Staffing Summit, let’s dig into staffing. Do folks have takeaways from the Staffing Summit? Where do we hire? How do we hire? When do we hire? How do we onboard? How do we staff programs? What do we pay staff? How do we calculate compensation?
Throughout the “off season”, EPIC New England hosts monthly drop-ins for Emerging Professionals In Camping to connect and share thoughts, questions, information, etc. around the topics that currently affect them in camping.
While hosted by EPIC, these conversations are open to anyone (EPIC, full-time, seasonal, veteran, etc.) who has insights or questions around the Hot Topic of the day.
ACCESS: “Hot Topics” is open to everyone in camping. However, we host these gatherings through the New England Camp Community (ACA, New England’s members platform). If you are not currently an ACA, New England member and you’d like to join EPIC for Hot Topics, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. He’ll help you with your one-time setup, so you can join us for all future chats.

Emerging Professionals In Camping (EPIC) is a kindred group within the American Camp Association for counselors, staff, and other camp professionals to connect and grow their careers in camping.
In January 2019, a group of emerging professionals in New England camping gathered at the ACA, New England office in Lexington, MA. Since then, EPIC, New England has continued to provide support, connections, and opportunities for anyone making that move into a camp career or taking another step towards their goals in the industry.
If you are someone passionate about a career in camping or a current camp pro looking for more growth and development, you are EPIC.
