Presented by Mike Katz, Director of Camp Sunshine:

This award recognizes and celebrates an individual, group, or organization for their significant contributions to ACA New England, leadership roles, and in the service of ACA in the New England Camp Community.

The individual that I’ll be recognizing and that has been selected to receive this award has demonstrated that one not ought be a tenure seasoned professional in the camp industry to have an impact. As an emerging leader, his passion and drive for both the ACA and the New England Camp Community inspires others while making a positive difference. After being involved with the Emerging Professionals Camp Committee in the New York/New Jersey area, he brought his expertise to ACA New England and stepped up to assist in the coordination and development of EPIC New England where he was peer selected as the inaugural chairperson, which speaks to the respect he’s already fostered from his fellow professionals. He was a member of the Executive Search and Transition Task Force Committee. He has been a Standard Visitor for the past five years, which I can attest to the fact that he takes his role very seriously and professionally as he was our visitor in 2019.

He served as a tour guide at his camp for one of the ACA New England Camp Tour Initiatives and most recently when the New England Conference had to pivot to a virtual format he served as a room host. As if all that isn’t enough, he’s a member of the Maine Summer Camp Community Outreach Committee, and in the past he’s volunteered his time helping children and families through Winter Kids. He’s an individual that embraces organization and leadership, looking at the big picture while enjoying the process of creating a plan to achieve his goals, the goals of his camp, and the goals of the ACA.

As an emerging leader he makes the future of the ACA look very exciting and bright, and it is my pleasure to present the Leadership and Service Award to Anthony Pyatt of Kamp Kohut.
