ACA (American Camp Association) Accreditation

All of our GSWNY summer camps are ACA (American Camp Association) Accredited. What does it mean to be an accredited camp? ACA Accreditation means that all five of our GSWNY summer camps submitted to a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation - from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.

American Camp Association® collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. All five GSWNY summer camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.

ACA helps all accredited camps provide:

  • Healthy, developmentally appropriate activities and learning experiences
  • Discovery through experiential education
  • Caring, competent role models
  • Service to the community and the environment
  • Opportunities for leadership and personal growth
