The Standards Course is for camp directors/camp representatives who would like to have an accreditation visit in 2015. The person completing the course should be the person involved in preparation for the visit, involved in the Camp-Self Assessment and available on-site during the visit.
- Full Standards Course- The full standards course is designed for the individual and camp that are NEW to the accreditation process and is required of anyone going through accreditation for the first time.
- Standards Update- The update course is offered to help prepare camp executives/directors/owners and visitor personnel already familiar with ACA Standards Program with information and training on the newly revised camp standards. This course is appropriate for camp directors/administrators/owners that are "experienced" in the ACA accreditation process – have completed the 2012 Standards Update Course and assisted a camp through an accreditation visit.
There is NO COST for the course; however, it is necessary to pre-register at least 7 days prior to the course you will be attending. Participants are responsible for their own lunch.
2014-2015 Standards Course dates/locations coming soon!
