About the Annual Accreditation Report

The Annual Accreditation Report allows camps to demonstrate compliance with accreditation standards in nonvisit years by submitting a narrative report. The purpose of the report is to:

Provide evidence of ongoing quality enhancement/improvement efforts, as part of the five-year accreditation cycle

Provide education and feedback from trained reviewers for camps in nonvisit years

Provide evidence of continual compliance with ACA standards throughout the accreditation cycle in nonvisit years.

2019 Annual Accreditation Report

  • Camps currently accredited and not scheduled for an onsite visit in 2019 need to submit an Annual Accreditation Report by February 1, 2019.
  • The  Annual Accreditation Report references standards found in the Accreditation Process Guice, 2012 Edition plus the NEW MANDATORY standards for 2019.

If your camp is scheduled for an on-site accreditation visit in 2019, you do not complete the Annual Accreditation Report.

If your camp is scheduled for an on-site accreditation visit in 2019, be sure to submit your Camp Information Form by February 1.
