The American Camp Association (ACA) is the premier accrediting association for summer camps in the United States. ACA makes certain that its member camps meet over 300 standards in areas such as staff selection, safety rules, health, sanitation, and administration. Professional members can visit the site to read the latest wisdom about camp management and to post job notices. Parents can search the ACA database for camps by several criteria: targeted focus, e.g. music or science; camps for special needs or cultural focus; and by location. Any summer camp in this country worth attending is a member of the ACA.
