Why you need insurance for your camp

Markel pioneered the coverages, forms, and unique extensions that are now camp insurance best practices.

Markel Specialty is currently recognized by the American Camp Association (ACA) as a “Mission Partner” which is the highest commitment designation a business partner can have. We earned this distinction through significant philanthropic investments and generous funding for the ACA Healthy Camp Research Study.

From 2006 through 2010 this study collected important bench-marking data about camper and staff injuries and illnesses in day and resident camps, and led to the development of prevention and intervention strategies. The study was published in the December 2009 issue of Injury Prevention. Read the Healthy Camp Study Impact Report.

Markel Specialty also offers support and sponsorship at national, regional, and local camp conferences and educational events. Our team of camp specialists frequently conducts risk management and safety workshops at these conferences.
