COVID-19 Coronavirus: Information for Our PCCCA Members - In light of the Coronavirus, the PCCCA Board feels that a strong policy statement communicated to your constituency is a great way to get ahead of the current wave of uncertainty. If a camp or conference center can create and follow a plan of action for preventing the spread of this infectious virus, they could create an environment that makes our sites one of the safest places for children and youth this summer. In order to help you, we have put together a special page of resources and program suggestions at www.pccca.net/coronavirus. Please check it out and submit suggestions as we continue to update this website. Thank you.

Have You Updated Your Website Listings? - PCCCA has websites that help potential retreat groups, summer staff, and summer campers find your ministry.

Join or Renew Your PCCCA Membership - For most of our camps and conference centers, their PCCCA membership expired on January 1. Now would be a great time to join or renew your PCCCA membership. You have the option of joining for one year or saving some money by paying for two years. Please keep in mind that PCCCA membership now lasts one (or two) years beyond your renewal date and does not follow the calendar year. If you are a smaller camp, keep in mind that there is a new discounted rate for membership. You can join using a check or credit card by going to www.pccca.net/membership.
PCCCA’s Joint Booth at the 2020 APCE Annual Event - On January 28-31, ten member sites (and PCCCA) were part of the exhibit hall at the Annual Event of the Association of Presbyterian Church Educators. This conference, held in Little Rock, AR, brought together educators from across the United States and Canada. The represented member sites were Ferncliff, Ghost Ranch, Heartland, Highlands, Hopewell, Menucha, Montreat, Mo-Ranch, Mound Ridge, and NaCoMe. Will you join us in 2021? Next year’s APCE Annual Event will be held in Chicago, IL on February 2-5.
36 Member Discounts! - We now have 36 member discounts! As a part of the benefits you receive through membership, PCCCA offers these special discounts on different products and services related to camps and conference centers. Utilizing two or more of these company discounts could save you more money than you pay in membership dues. You can check out the list by going to the PCCCA website. If you are a current PCCCA member, we hope you will login to the Resources page on the PCCCA website and utilize these discounts for your ministry. If you are not yet a member, you can join or renew at www.pccca.net/membership.
