New Communication Strategy

Hello Member Camps, MCA Staff, Board Members and other important pieces of the MCA puzzle.

I am very excited to be partaking in this new adventure inside the MCA office. Kim and Dana have made this early transition very smooth and I am hoping to build on the noticeable excitement that already emanates from inside these light green walls.


The plan is to have one email blast to our subscribers each week, filled with all the information that we will gather and want to share with all of you. 

If you have items you would like shared contact me

Starting in February, MCA will continue the tradition of profiling one camp per week. Please keep in mind that this will be a great opportunity to share the great stories and amazing fun your camp has to share. It would be great if we could share every single camp this year. Keep an eye out for more details before the new year.
