The SCA Accreditation Program provides the opportunity for camps to receive their accreditation certificate, indicating their recognized efforts by the SCA for running safe summer camps and meeting industry standards in their programming, human resources, and facility.
Our accreditation program is also an educational tool for what industry standards are for organized camps through the accreditation manual and camp visits. With the growing time demands on camp directors and boards, the SCA is committed to the investment of reviewing its standards in order to add too and make this resource user friendly and a camp’s go-to for understanding standard minimums and changes in legislative demands.
The SCA Accreditation Certificate is awarded to camps meeting 100% of the mandatory standards and a minimum of 80% of its desirable standards. Camps will be visited every three years by the SCA for a full camp audit to renew their certification. Camps are required to keep their SCA membership in good standing and submit an annual review of their standard compliance in years between visits.
