ACA provides camps and their leaders with well-tested programs and services that advance a continuous improvement process for camps that goes beyond fundamental practices.

ACA encourages camps to become accredited and to use ACA standards and educational resources to adopt a proactive approach in developing and evolving safe practices and procedures.

ACA believes agencies responsible for camp regulation should collaborate with ACA to implement relevant foundational practices reflected in ACA expertise to enable a high level of care and well-being for campers and staff during a camp experience.
