1950 - 2020 Celebrating our 70th year of creativity and friendship.


Membership and Donation


The GPCAA is a nonprofit organization and was started in 1950. The original name "Great Plains Recreation Leader's Laboratory" met for the first time in Nystad, Nebraska. Even though there have been many changes, the creative spirit still exists and is going forward with some 'NEW BEGINNINGS'. 

Annual membership in GPCAA is $25 a year. Your membership is included when you register for one of the three camp packages.  However, If you are unable to attend the retreat and still wish to become or maintain your membership and keep in touch with all the great things GPCAA is doing, you can still become a GPCAA member.
