Separate registration is needed; there is no fee and conference attendance is not required to attend this workshop. Overnight accommodations are available through hotel.

Accreditation Process Workshop

Monday, October 15, 2018
8:30am - 1:00pm

Audience: This workshop is designed for camp representatives who are preparing for accreditation visits in 2019 and beyond. The course is appropriate for those who are new to the accreditation process AND those who have been part of an accreditation visit or completed standards training in the past. Every camp being visited must have at least one person who completes the workshop on behalf of the camp; that person must actively assist in preparation for the accreditation visit, be on site a significant amount of time during the camp season and participate fully in the on-site accreditation visit.

Workshop Objectives: Participants leave feeling excited, engaged, and ready to prepare for an accreditation visit. They know where to find and how to use information, resources, and technology provided by ACA. They can navigate the Accreditation Process Guide, 2019 Edition to understand compliance and applicability of standards, including all revisions to the standards and the accreditation process, and they can articulate the steps in the visit timeline and the responsibilities of the camp and the visitors.

Accreditation Process Guide, 2019 Edition: The printed version will be distributed to current fee-paying camps being visited in 2019 at the workshop (1 per camp). All other camps paying accreditation fees will have access to an electronic version of the standards in October 2018. Non-fee-paying camps and camps wanting additional printed copies can purchase through the bookstore beginning in September 2018.
