In June of 2018 we had two visitors from ACA (American Camp Association) spend a day at Camp Michigamme. The ACA visitors were there to determine if Camp Michigamme meets the standards set forth by ACA. These standards are considered best practices in the camp industry and help ensure we are keeping up with all the latest camp developments. The standards exceed many state and federal laws as well as guidelines.
The ACA is a nation-wide community that connects camp professionals with resources, support, training, updates, professionals in related fields, and more. Camp Michigamme has been ACA accredited before.

It is that time of year…the time when camp settles in for the coming winter, the leaves are quickly finding rest upon the ground and fresh white coats of snow are common sights in the mornings. Programs on site are all wrapped up for 2018 and camp grounds have been winterized. Camp Michigamme shifts into a season of restful wilderness, where the flora and fauna take over the grounds and reclaim the space. Over the next six months, camp will sit waiting for the coming 2019 summer but for now, it is content to soak in the peace of late fall, winter, and early spring. While camp rests, preparation for the 2019 season is already underway. Stay tuned for exciting new updates and changes that will be happening over the next few months including a finalized 2019 schedule of sessions, a dean’s list for all sessions, website design updates, and the revealing of the 2019 summer theme!
