      What does NYSCO Membership get me?

      Access to an entire library of camp games, team trainings, resources and more. Plus, connection to a network of hundreds of member camps nationwide 

      Is there a cost?

      Yes, but it's a very low annual fee

      I'm a sports/specialized/daycare alternative camp. Can NYSCO help me?

      NYSCO helps any camps that are not overnight/resident camps. Our CHB operators range from municipal day camps, to childcare-alternative camps and even specialty camps like robotics, art, equestrian and martial arts camps. Any camp where kids are dropped off and picked up daily will benefit from a NYSCO membership

      Is this for owners, operators or team members?

      All of the above. Camp owners will benefit from the marketing and organization help, operators/supervisors will benefit from the resources and training, and team members will benefit tremendously from the easy to access games and activities 

      How does accreditation work? Is it the same as membership?

      Membership is access to the NYSCO members area where you'll find camp resources to help your camp thrive. Accreditation is different. Accreditation is an exhaustive set of standards that a camp must meet in order to be Accredited by NYSCO. Once you're a member, you can request Accreditation, and the NYSCO team can help you with the process.
