The American Camp Association (ACA) accredits over 2400 camps nationwide. Accreditation requires camps to meet or exceed up to 300 standards for health, safety, and program quality. Accredited camps are re-visited for renewal inspections every three years.
YMCA Camp Thunderbird has been an ACA-accredited camp since 2003.
As a community of camping professionals, ACA is a leading authority in child development, offering members opportunities to share knowledge and resources to enhance the overall camp experience.
