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.
This first-of-its-kind study is a five-year initiative in conjunction with Ohio State University and the Camp Nurses Association to track and monitor trends in camp health, identify risk and protection factors, and develop appropriate intervention strategies to make camps healthier and safer.
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.
