Associate Visitor to Visitor (AV2V)

AV2V was developed by the ACA, Southeastern Standards Chair and Field Office to provide current Associate Visitors a “stepping stone” between being an Associate Visitor and Visitor. The goals of this three part opportunity are:

• Develop a better understanding of the role of a Visitor
• Build confidence as a Visitor
• Understand where and how to find Visitor resources
• Review important information from the Associate Visitor Training Course.

The AV2V “training” consists of the following:

1. Three pre-requisite assignments- each assignment has at several parts.
2. A one-hour group webinar
3. A wrap up survey, which will provide the individual with the opportunity to accept or decline role as a Visitor.

Associate Visitor Course Training

Not a Visitor, but interested in becoming one?

ACA's Associate Visitor course helps participants identify the purpose and structure of ACA's accreditation programs and understand the steps of the process at the camp, section, and national levels. Participants 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 stresses the awareness and acceptance of the intent of the standards to represent accepted practices of organized camping. Prerequisite: Participants in the Associate Visitor Course must be at least twenty-one years of age, a current ACA member, and have completed the Standards course and an application endorsed by their local ACA office. Please visit our Upcoming Events to view our dates and locations!
