Camp Owners & Directors Association

Making A Difference

The Camp Owners and Directors Association was created to help forward-thinking camp directors discuss and share best business practices with the goal of running camp more effectively and efficiently. We collaborate year-round to review and exchange ideas — from industry regulations to staff training techniques to program development. All CODA members benefit from these shared resources.

Our Mission

We believe in strengthening the legacy of camp by connecting camp professionals and sharing best business practices. Our annual event, CODACON, is a conference that focuses on the key elements of camp management.

  • Communication – Internal and External
  • Management – Staff, Leadership, and Financial
  • Planning and Innovation – Program and Training
  • Current Issues and Challenges

CODA’s goal is simple — better camping through better business. Our organization is focused on helping YOU, the camp owner and director, run a better camp.
