Message from the ACA Program Manager

Season's Greetings & Happy New Year!

This is an exciting time of year for many, including for us at the Alberta Camping Association. As some of you know Gwen stepped down from her role as the ACA’s Executive Director last spring. Since her departure the Board of Directors has been busy with not only trying to find a replacement, but also keep the ACA running. In the middle of November, I started as the new Program Manager.

ErinAs I have recently started in this role, it is going to take some time to navigate our systems, learn more about the association and try to catch up from where Gwen left off. I thank you all for your patience in advance! With a background in the camp and outdoor industry I am excited for this opportunity to connect with each one of our members; build relationships within the camp community, provide information and resources, and of course- to enhance the reputation of camping within Alberta.

With the holidays just around the corner and a new year fast approaching, we have decided to push our yearly renewal date to Monday, January 15th, 2018. Please also note that the Alberta Camping Association Office will be closed from Monday, December 25th to Monday, January 1st, reopening Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018. If you have any questions or concerns during that time, please send us an email to and I will get back to you in the new year.

We are also thrilled to announce that this next year’s conference will be hosted at Camp Kindle, March 19th – 21st, 2018. Please keep a watchful eye on our website, as we will have our registration open shortly. This year we will have two different accommodation options available; bunk style beds in a shared area, or private rooms! We only have limited supply of private rooms available, so if this is something that interests you- you will want to register as soon as possible.


I am looking forward to connecting with you all very soon. Wishing everyone a great Holiday Season, and a very happy New Year.
