Connecticut Camping Association 50th Anniversary


CCA Turns 50 in 2015

The Connecticut Camping Association has been a part of the summer camp experience since 1965.  We have been helping camps and camp famalies with all their summer camp needs.  CCA is dedicated to helping camps provide the best summer camp experience possible, with professional development in best practices and child development.  CCA is also a resource for famalies as they choose the best possible camp experience for their children by providing information about choosing camps and contact info for member camps of CCA.

CCA is celebrating its 50th year with a series of articles written in celebration of summer camp:
