Closer Look: Annual Accreditation Report for Camps


American Camp Association

Type of Course

Recorded Webinar



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. ​

​We will be taking a Closer Look at the Annual Accreditation Report or otherwise known as AAR. The Annual Accreditation Report is an educational tool and annual touchpoint that focuses on camps' on-going improvement of their policies, procedures, and practices. In addition to the Statement of Compliance, the AAR is an annual requirement for camps to provide evidence of continued compliance with ACA standards throughout the accreditation cycle in non-visit years to maintain accreditation status.

​This Closer Look video will help you magnify recommendations for getting started, how to access and submit your report, resources to complete your AAR as well as the updates and changes for this year. 

Additional Resources:

More information, tools & resources to help you with your accreditation preparations can also be found in the Accreditation Academy in the Maintaining Accreditation section. 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 alongside this video!
