Accreditation & Affiliations
Camp of the Rising Son makes every effort to meet the highest standards for operating a fun, adventure-packed summer camp program. To promote this standard of excellence, we maintain our accreditation with the American Camp Association®. Being ACA-Accredited® assures parents that Camp of the Rising Son has had a regular, independent safety audit that goes beyond state regulations. We care enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of our operation — including everything from staff qualifications and training to health care, the site itself, and food service 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. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety. Camp of the Rising Son makes this extra effort because we are committed to the health and safety of the children we serve.
