Our Camps are American Camp Association (ACA) accredited.

ACA Accreditation means that your child’s summer camp cares enough to undergo a thorough peer review of its operation — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Our ACA accreditation provides you with a piece of mind and the assurance we provide a safe, high-quality program for your camper!
