Core Standards Resources - v. 2019

Just as the name implies, standards included in this section are “core” to a camp accredited by the American Camp Association. Users expect clean and repaired facilities and to be treated with respect and dignity. For day, resident, and short-term camps, clearly articulated goals, outcomes, and activities designed to assist in camper development are core to guiding the camp’s focus and programming.

The documents listed below are to be used as resources.  They may/may not be appropriate for your camp and/or program. Except for some of the checklists, these documents are not to be designed to be used “as is” yet are provided as to assist you as you develop the policies, procedures, guidelines for your camp.
