Great Rivers Standards Training
The Standards Course is for camp directors and/or other camp representatives who expect or would like to have an accreditation visit in 2015. The person completing the course is expected to assist the camp in preparation for the accreditation visit and participate in the on-site visit. . The course is also encouraged for anyone who would like to find out more about the American Camp Association Standards, and the accreditation process. The course applies to directors, maintenance, program, kitchen and other key administrative camp staff. If you are interested in becoming an associate visitor, the Standards Course is a pre-requisite.
If your camp is scheduled for an accreditation visit in 2015, a representative from your camp must complete the Standards Course before a visit can be scheduled.
There is no cost for the course; however, it is necessary to pre-register prior to the course you will be attending. You will receive the new Accreditation Process Guide (APG) at the training. Each camp will receive one notebook.
Associate Visitor Course
Visitors are the heart and soul of the ACA standards program. Without them we would have no way to implement the accreditation program. There are no costs to you except your time. You will want to check out the qualifications and responsibilities for both the Associate Visitor and Lead Visitor.
ACA standards visitors believe the benefits they receive by far exceed the investment they make in time to train for and visit camps.
