The Associate Visitor Course is offered by ACA to prepare persons to serve as Associate Visitors in the Standards program. NOTE: Completion of a Full Standards Course is the prerequisite to this course. This course helps participants to identify the purpose and structure of ACA's accreditation programs and to understand the steps in the process at the camp, local, and national levels. Participants will become familiar with the legal implications of visitor actions as well as develop skills in gathering information, making compliance decisions, and consistently applying the standards in a variety of situations. This course will stress the awareness and acceptance of the intent of the standards to represent accepted practices of organized camping. The Associate Visitor Course includes lodging and meals at YMCA Camp Collins during your stay.
