- Accreditation


The American Camp Association (ACA) is the largest professional camping organization in the United States. ACA Accreditation means our program is committed to offering a solid foundation of health, safety, and program quality. We undergo a thorough review (up to 300 standards) of our management and operation – from staff qualifications and training, emergency management, site, food service, transportation, health and wellness, safety regulations and program activities. 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 in our program reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Sierra Sleep-Away and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety. The Sierra Sleep-Away is operated by Peninsula Activities (Peninsula Bay Cities).

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.
