The WAIC Annual Conference is a great opportunity for camp owners, directors, and vendors to come together for education, camp planning, and most importantly, networking, friendships and fun! 


Whether you’re a member of WAIC or not, this conference is open for all camps and individuals who are looking for great conference programming geared toward the camp professional. 


Please note that the 2020 WAIC Conference at the Denver Grand Hyatt has been postponed until 2021. We look forward to gathering in-person with camp professionals, industry experts, and vendors soon!
