Closer Look: Transportation Practices

Welcome to the Closer Look Video Series. This recorded on-demand video is one of many that is part of a large library of accreditation related resources offered through ACA called the ACA Accreditation Academy - your one stop shop for learning and growing from the accreditation experience. ​

​We will be taking a Closer Look at at standards related to your transportation practices. Standards covered in this video all refer to the Accreditation Process Guide v.2019 or the APG v.2019. If you’re still using the APG v.2012, check out the Closer Look video on Bridging before proceeding. 

​This Closer Look video will help you magnify standards that have had changes or updates, standards that are most often missed and that often times require a deeper dive view. Across various sections of the APG v.2019, we will highlight how a camp’s transportation practices promote safety, minimize risk, and help you consider critical aspects such as traffic control, vehicular safety, driver qualifications and camper education. Even if your camp does not offer any transportation, there are still standards that ALL CAMPS must score so this video can also help provide guidance on thinking through which standards apply for your camp.

More information, tools & resources to help you with your accreditation preparations can be found on the website, organized for whether or you are Maintaining Accreditation OR Preparing for a Visit. If you are an accredited camp or a camp officially seeking accreditation, you may access a digital copy of the Accreditation Process Guide v.2019 in the Accreditation Portal as a reference to use along side this video!
