Now 15 years and counting, I can honestly say that it has been a great investment for Bunk1.com with their wealth of resources, marketing capabilities, and national exposure.” Ari Ackerman Founder & CEO Bunk1.com New York, NY Bunk1.com New York, NY

ePACT's mission is to help people and communities with uncertain situations like the COVID-19 pandemic. We're working with community organizations to ensure they have access to emergency messaging tools and online medical records to continue supporting their families during this difficult time. If you're hosting programs, providing childcare for essential personnel, or planning your summer camps, we're offering additional discounts on member fees, as well as accelerated setup times to make sure you have all that you need. ePACT offers a secure emergency network used by recreation organizations across North America. As a HIPAA-compliant online system, ePACT replaces paper medical forms, waivers, and consents for families attending recreation programs and camps, improving their ability to collect, manage, and access critical information needed to support their members. ePACT makes life easier – and safer – for recreation programs and all the families they serve.

Make your woodworking program sustainable and scalable. Now in over 50 camps and schools around the world. Offer hand tool woodworking to campers of all abilities using your current staff, tables, and rooms. Kids develop social emotional learning by making projects from start to finish using only hand tools. We provide online and in person training, ongoing support, detailed lesson plans for all levels, ACA certified safety checklists, patent pending workstations that fit on your tables, and all tools. Everything fits in a locking, rolling tool cabinet. As seen in Fine Woodworking and Fine Homebuilding. ACA member discount 5% mention code ACA19.

Camps can provide parents a combined online/offline program that includes our coaching, lesson plans, and support online along with a box with workbenches, wood, and real, but kid appropriate tools. The workbench is portable so parents would need a sturdy table in a place that can get messy but nothing else. Parents would create about a project a week with your children for 8 weeks. You would have the option of purchasing up front OR rent to own. After 8 weeks, you would own the tools and workbench and would have the option of buying additional lesson plans and consumables to keep woodworking for months to come. Camps can have the option of teaching live classes to give the projects their special culture and maintain community over this summer.

How will you connect with your campers and their families this summer? The Virtual Camp Portal is one of the few platforms that allows you to customize your portal, put together your camp weeks and sessions, and then use your own videos, PDFs, and links (or content from our shared library) to provide program activities. The system will even help you create login credentials for each camper. A flat fee for your portal with no "per camper" costs makes the Virtual Camp Portal the best and most economical way to offer programs for your campers this summer.
