At the beginning of 2018, Camp Latgawa began the process seeking accreditation by the American Camp Association, and we are pleased to share the we have accomplished this goal! American Camp Association informed us early November 2018 that we have been selected as an accredited site.
The American Camp Association sets the industry standards for the residential and day camp community, offers training, best practices, and resources to camps. The accreditation process requires many hours of review, covering every aspect of camp including food service, the buildings and grounds, staff training, and programming. The process also includes a site visit, and continuing documentation of staff having followed approved practices.
We are very proud of this accomplishment and are pleased to display the ACA Accredited logo at our camp. We are truly grateful to all those who had a hand in this process, including but not limited to: Camp Latgawa’s past and current staff for developing and maintaining a truly special place; our countless volunteers who serve as board members, counselors, and staff; our colleagues serving camps all across the conference who offered support and advice; and all of our campers and their families for their trust, leadership, and participation!
