Started in 2004 through the ACA, New York Affiliate Office, Emerging Professionals In Camping is a community of camp people who want to grow a career in the camp industry or folks who may have other year-round jobs but are life-long camp professionals. There are no official requirements to participate in EPIC. If you’re making the jump from seasonal to year-round or part-time to full-time; if you’re transitioning into camping from another career; and/or if you’re looking for a network of camp colleagues who together are seeking resources, education, opportunities and growth for themselves and for camp, give EPIC a try.
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 opportunities for anyone making that move into a camp career or taking that next step towards their goals in the industry.
