What does it mean to be an “accredited summer camp?”
For summer camps, there is a national organization of camp professionals dedicated to identifying and standardizing the most important knowledge, experience and practices of quality camp programs. It’s called the American Camp Association (ACA). For almost 100 years, the ACA has gathered and refined what it considers to be the “best practices” and has defined almost 300 industry-accepted and government-recognized standards for summer camps.
For a summer camp to be “ACA accredited,” like Rockbrook, it means that camp is abiding by the policies, procedures and practices accepted by the best camps in the country. It means that camp has agreed to regular on-site inspections and professional reviews. And for parents, it means you can feel more confident that the camp is taking the best possible care of your child. Visit the Parents Section of the ACA website to learn more (highly recommended!).
With the American Camp Association’s long history, body of camp related knowledge, and level of professionalism, Rockbrook is proud to be an ACA accredited summer camp.
