What is the ACA and why is accreditation important?
The American Camp Association (ACA) is a community of camp professionals who, for nearly 100 years, have joined together
to share camp knowledge and experience and to ensure the quality of camp programs.
In addition to being actively involved in the ACA and many of its organizations, Camp Danbee is an accredited camp.
ACA accreditation means that your child's camp cares enough to undergo a thorough review of its operation - up to
300 standards are examined from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. The American Camp Association
collaborates with experts from The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth service agencies
to assure that current practices at accredited camps reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation.
ACA accreditation is generally considered in the camp industry to be the best evidence for parents that a camp is committed
to creating a safe, nurturing environment for children, as it assures that the accredited camp has passed regular,
independent safety audits that go beyond regulations in most states.
