About Accreditation

Accreditation standards outline mandatory and recommended practices for camps and other outdoor programs. We encourage you to become familiar with the standards of the accrediting organization in your country or province and to become accredited.

Pre-Arrival + On-Site

The tables on this page help you see which video training modules correspond to which standards in an organization. We encourage you to provide additional on-site training, such as role-playing and discussion, to augment the skills your staff will learn on

Meeting Standards

Professional staff training that covers a range of topics, from diversity to discipline, is part of every set of accreditation standards. The videos, quizzes, and handouts that are part of our content libraries will help you meet or exceed many staff training standards.

Documenting Compliance

Because accreditation requires documented compliance with certain standards, we've made it easy for you to print a spreadsheet that summarizes your staff's status and completed quiz results. From your Director Dashboard, click Statistics > Download Excel Export.
