1. Accreditation is a distinction. Only one in four camps seeks and earns it. To earn accreditation, our camp complies with up to 300 health, safety and program quality standards. We have reviewed, and are rated, on every facet of our operation.
2. Accreditation isn’t easy and it isn’t cheap. We invest in accreditation because the children we serve deserve our best. It’s a behind the scenes risk-management process that assures us we are prepared for the uncertainties, so we can concentrate on the children.
3. It isn’t just camp directors who put together these standards. The ACA standards program is the result of collaboration and review by experts from many fields – child development, aquatics, risk management, and health care professionals, to name a few.
4. The camp experience is a vibrant, live-action event. While a “good housekeeping” packaged-product guarantee can’t apply, accreditation does guarantee this camp is established on a solid foundation of health and safety standards developed specifically for camps and trusted by parents for 50 years.
