American Red Cross

In order to meet several of the American Camp Association standards, certification in CPR/AED, first aid, or lifeguarding is required. To assist ACA-accredited camps in meeting these standards, ACA is pleased to announce a continued partnership with the American Red Cross that will provide a 20-percent discount for Red Cross Health and Safety training for ACA-accredited camps! 

Your 20% discount for Red Cross Health and Safety training applies to:

  • Red Cross Training Service courses that an ACA-accredited camp offers as an authorized provider.
  • Full Service Courses provided by the American Red Cross at an ACA-accredited camp’s location.

The discount is applied when the course record is submitted. 

At this time, the American Camp Association requires that any aquatic, first aid, and CPR/AED certification must include, at minimum, 50% of course time to include in-person instruction, hands-on practice, and skills assessment under the direct supervision of a certified instructor. It is acceptable to have a portion of the course be completed online (course readings, etc.).  Note that the discount does not apply to Learn-to-Swim Facility fees or to Aquatic Examiner Service fees.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds, and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports U.S. military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

To access the discount, you will need to have an active ACA individual membership.
