- Accreditation


The American Camp Association (ACA) is the largest professional camping organization in the United States. ACA Accreditation means our program cares enough to undergo a thorough review (over 300 standards) of it’s 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 service agencies to assure that current practices in our program reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Sierra Adventure Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.

ACA helps accredited camps provide:

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

We are pleased to report we have met these strict standards since 1976.
