Welcome to the Closer Look Video Series. This recorded on-demand video is one of many that is part of a large library of accreditation related resources offered through ACA called the ACA Accreditation Academy - your one stop shop for learning and growing from the accreditation experience. ​

Closer Look videos take a small cluster of standards and explore commonly missed standards, tricky interpretations, and highlight resources available to provide deeper knowledge and understanding. These are helpful to a broad audience of viewers including accredited camps, camps considering accreditation for the first time, new leadership joining an accredited camp and accreditation volunteers.

Standards covered in this video all refer to the Accreditation Process Guide v.2019 or the APG v.2019. If you are an accredited camp or a camp officially seeking accreditation, you may access a digital copy of the Accreditation Process Guide v.2019 in the Accreditation Portal as a reference to use along side this video!

More information, tools & resources to help you with your accreditation preparations can be found on the ACAcamps.org website in the Accreditation Academy. Check out the Accreditation Standards Toolkit for even more learning opportunities.

These videos require registration, but are complementary, so you earn continuing education credits.
