The North Carolina Youth Camp Association was formed in 2009 to expand public understanding of summer camps in North Carolina and to represent their interests with local, state, and federal policymakers. The association seeks to strengthen and expand the educational, environmental and recreational opportunities provided by North Carolina’s camps. Today, more than 40 members have joined the association.
The mission of the North Carolina Youth Camp Association is to strengthen and expand the educational, environmental and recreational opportunities provided by all organized camps in North Carolina by encouraging cooperation among camps, sponsoring camp-specific research, communicating camp industry information, and building relationships with various private, non-profit, public, and governmental interests and agencies.
NCYCA is a membership organization of North Carolina summer camps & adventure programs. It is a 501 (c) (6) non-profit organization, governed by an elected Board of Directors.
