For Camps

The American Camp Association, New England is the only organization that accredits children's camps in New England.

Latest from the Camps Blog

Members of ACA have for decades been giving children and adults quality opportunities to learn powerful lessons in community, leadership, character-building, skill development, and healthy living.

Seek a higher standard

The ACA Accreditation process is a voluntary commitment by camps to the highest standards of health, safety, and program quality. Accreditation not only helps camps by educating camp owners and directors, it lets the camp-seeking public know that your camp cares enough to undergo this peer-review process.


The main purpose of the ACA accreditation program is to educate camp owners and directors in the administration of key aspects of camp operation.

Training & Certification

Properly trained staff are paramount to a quality program. Both our own staff and our camps are constantly offering trainings to ensure the success of your camp.

Camp Resources

Earning and maintaining ACA accreditation takes time and commitment. ACA has many resources available to help you not only through this process, but to build a better camp.

“Being an ACA member is more than just about accreditation. ACA, New England provides us with useful resources and great guidance, especially as we navigate these unprecedented times.” — Tammy Fortune, Camp Director.
