Not a Visitor, but interested in becoming one?

Volunteers are the heart and soul of the ACA-Accreditation program. Without Standards Visitors, the American Camp Association would not be able to implement the Accreditation program.

ACA's Associate Visitor course helps participants identify the purpose and structure of ACA's accreditation programs and understand the many steps of the process. 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.  Become a Visitor
