Berks Area Youth Recreation-
Berks Area Youth Recreation is a 501 (c) (3) non profit charitable organization. We provide early childhood enrichment and camping programs for children ages four-school age through out the year. We hold meetings at local schools, churches and child care centers.
The American Camp Association (formerly known as the American Camping Association) is a community of camp professionals who, for nearly 100 years, have joined together to share our knowledge and experience and to ensure the quality of camp programs. Because of our diverse 7,000 plus membership and our exceptional programs, children and adults have the opportunity to learn powerful lessons in community, character-building, skill development, and healthy living — lessons that can be learned nowhere else.
As a leading authority in child development, ACA works to preserve, promote, and improve the camp experience. Our association is committed to helping our members and all camps provide:
Camp communities committed to a safe, nurturing environment
Caring, competent adult role models
Healthy, developmentally-appropriate experiences
Service to the community and the natural world
Opportunities for leadership and personal growth
Discovery, experiential education, and learning opportunities
Excellence and continuous self-improvement
