We would like to invite you and your camp to become members in the Midwest Association of Independent Camps (MAIC). MAIC is the only organization made up of independently owned and operated camps in the Midwest. We are dedicated to promoting high quality standards in organized camping, while offering children and parents the best possible camp experience.
As part of your membership to the MAIC you receive the following:
Our organization is proud to donate funds to the ACA's Fresh Start Fund. The fund sends underprivileged children to camps in the Midwest each summer. We are also proud to help sponsor keynote speakers for the annual Mid-states conference here in Chicago.
- A listing and a direct link on our official web site at www.campsrus.com. The purpose of the site is to continue to promote private camping in the Midwest, while providing families and potential staff members with current information on the top private day and residential camps in the Midwest. This site is currently being updated and we will have a complete new site in January.
- Networking opportunities with other camp directors via dinner meetings, special training events and more. Our gatherings often include educational experts who keep us informed on trends in camping and current issues facing our campers.
- Invitations to events such as the Mid-states conference luncheon with Bob Ditter as our guest speaker and other special organized events that vary annually.
If you are interested in finding out more about joining MAIC, please contact our Association President for more information and an application.
