FULL - Accreditation Process Workshop - ACA, Ohio

Saturday, 7 March 2020 -
10:00am to 3:00pm

All times local unless stated differently below.

This workshop is FULL and the location has a HARD CAPACITY - please DO NOT JUST SHOW UP.  If you are still in need of taking an Accreditation Process Workshop, please refer to our full Accreditation Related Events Calendar or contact Brandie Le Clair for other possible options.


Audience: This workshop is designed for camp representatives who are preparing for accreditation visits in 2020 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 shipped to current fee-paying camps being visited in 2020 (1 per camp), beginning in the fall. All other camps paying accreditation fees have access to an electronic version of the standards online via the ACA website Accreditation Portal (APG access is given to persons listed as Primary or Standards Contacts, or Accreditation Customizers of fee-paying camps).  Non-fee-paying camps and camps wanting additional printed copies can purchase these through the bookstore.
