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
In addition to being actively involved in the ACA and many of its organizations, Camp Winadu 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.
