The ACA Enrollment Survey is Here!

The American Camps Association (ACA) has released their Spring 2011 Enrollment Survey, reflecting the trends and opinions of camp directors everywhere. Over 80% of respondents felt enrollment was higher or the same as this time last year. Enrollments at resident camps were promisingly up 51% (compared to 45% last year) and 43% at day camps (up from 35% last year).

Requests for financial support also seemed to level off. Nearly 50% felt they were the same as last year and only 30% felt they were higher than last year (compared to 45% last year). Though despite the positive snapshot of increased enrollment, many camp directors still expressed concerns about staying competitive with other summer options and parents waiting until the last minute to enroll.
