The Australian Camps Association (ACA) is a national organisation that represents 130 camps in Victoria alone. Our fully accredited member camps provide unforgettable experiences with outdoor activities for groups of children and adults.
The Australian Camps Association has been awarded Approved Body status by Austrade.
An ACA member camp caters for between 30 and 300 people in shared dormitory-style accommodation, with most camps located in beautiful regional areas, as well as a number in cities and towns. Residential camps are best described as places that offer group accommodation, usually with full catering and activities onsite and nearby.

All member camps visited during the study tour are accredited with the Quality Tourism Framework.
Victoria is Australia's most densely populated state, with most of its population concentrated in the area surrounding Port Phillip Bay. Boasting a diverse landscape which includes snow-capped mountains, vast seashores, and charming historic towns, Victoria’s high standard of living and multicultural society attracts millions of international visitors every year.
Victoria is perhaps best known for its capital city, Melbourne, which has consistently ranked among the world's most liveable cities. As a safe, vibrant, and multicultural city, Melbourne offers world-class study options, high quality services and the widest range of things to do.
Melbourne is also the best student city in Australia, with the entire state of Victoria being a global knowledge hub. Attracting more than 225,000 international students in 2018, Victorian universities rank in the world's best - attracting the world's top academics and researchers.
