Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is ACA Accredited
Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck became ACA accredited in 2013 and has just become re-certified again this past 2018.
Becoming accredited for Camp Pa Qua Tuck by the American Camping Association was a long awaited dream come true. It meant that our hard work and additional attention to Health and Safety standards either met or exceeded the requirements set forth by the ACA.
The purpose of the process is to inform and educate a camp’s management with practices that are generally accepted and then emulated within the camping industry. It establishes a “norm” for behavioral, medical and program practices, transportation, security, safety, entertainment – just to name a few of the areas reviewed. In essence, it establishes a continuity and a minimum requirement for how camps are run. And in reality, all of this scrutiny then provides avenues for improvement.
