Attend the 2006 ACA National Conference in ... Chicago: partnering with parents.


Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers Cityfront Center February 7-10, 2006

Partnering with Parents -- Starting the Conversation

Examine what your camp looks like through the eyes of parents, and test those assumptions as you explore the conference theme through a series of panels, lectures, and discussions. Intended as the start of a conversation that continues throughout the year, you will....

* Hear from parents first-hand -- parents for whom camp is largely unknown.

* Address myths and realities -- glean new insights from parents who know and value camp.

* Take a critical look -- is your dialogue with parents at the level you want?

* And, take home working examples and models.

A solid program with take-it-back-to-camp appeal

Innovations and new strategies in youth development, business and finance, human resources and risk management.

Cultural points of interest ...

Art Institute, Museum of Natural History, Museum of Science and Industry, Aquarium, Planetarium, Chicago Theater
