Correction: Three (Not Two) New Mandatory Standards for 2019

In the fall 2018 CampLine (page 17), we stated there were two new mandatory standards that will impact all ACA-accredited camps in 2019. There are actually three (two of them address locking of medication). The list below includes the three new “mandatory” standards. Two of them (SF.3 and HW.19) are current standards moved to mandatory status. HW.28.2 is a new standard.

Three New Mandatory Standards for 2019

After thorough discussion and review, the ACA National Standards Commission felt it appropriate to change the status of two current accreditation standards to "mandatory" status and add a mandatory standard specific to camps that serve rental groups. This means that all currently accredited camps will need to come into compliance with these standards for the 2019 season.

The two standards that have been moved to mandatory status are:
