Legislative News

For over 25 years MCA has been the leading professional voice for the Massachusetts’ camping industry, consisting of hundreds of resident and day camps. MCA, in conjunction with the American Camping Association of New England, retains the services of a well established lobbying firm to move forward the major effort of implementing legislative changes. We have made measurable gains and achieved many positive adjustments, but there is much work that still needs to be done. Without a sustained and vigorous lobbying initiative, the cost of operating a children’s camp in Massachusetts will make it impossible for many camps to stay open.

In addition to lobbying for support of initiatives that are critical to our industry’s health and survival, we constantly keep our Members informed of the latest legislative and regulatory developments impacting camps in Massachusetts.

Members can access our News and Information page for practical and detailed information on all of the recent changes.
