In the fall of 2015, there was a great deal of information in regard to several key, operational changes to the ACA Accreditation Program. These changes include a change in the years between Accreditation site visit years and shifting to continual compliance with the standards through the completion of an Annual Accreditation Report in nonvisit years. 

We have been working with camps each summer to incrementally move camps from a three year cycles to a 5 year cycle.

In the upcoming weeks, All camps scheduled to have a site visit in 2018 will be contacted with more information in regard to your visit. Most camps will have their site visit as scheduled, while a few randomly selected camps will have their site visit postponed one or two years.   

All eligible camps will eventually move to a five-year visit cycle. The implementation will take place in phases. In New England, the implementation process of the new Accreditation Cycle will take three to five years. Camps scheduled to have their site visit in 2019 will be contacted in in the fall of 2018. Learn more regarding the operational change to ACA Accreditation.
