ACA Acreditation: While we have always run a clean,
organized, safe and fun camp, we decided to make it official by applying for
American Camp Association (ACA) Accreditation in 2014. During an extensive
eight-month process, CWES submitted to a thorough review of its operation by the
ACA — up to 300 standards. American Camp Association collaborates with experts
from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other
youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the
most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation.
We are now officially American Camp Association Accredited, one of only 78
camps in the entire country to achieve first-time accreditation in 2014. CWES
and ACA form a partnership promoting summers of growth and fun in an environment
committed to safety. For more parent-focused information about accreditation,
visit ACA’s www.CampParents.org, and watch this video to learn about the benefits of sending your child to an ACA accredited camp from the CEO of ACA, Tom Holland.
