CWES is now Accredited by the American Camp Association! 

ACA Accreditation: 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, 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.
