American Camp Association® (ACA) Accreditated
All volunteers and staff undergo a thorough screening process including criminal background and National Sex Offender Registry checks. They are required to adhere to all OSS/PH policies and procedures to ensure the best experience for all participants. Contact us if you are interested in becoming a leader and providing the experience of a lifetime to this year’s campers!
American Camp Association® (ACA) accreditation means that Pilgrim Heights, the camp you are considering for yourself or your child, cares enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of our operations — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.
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.
ACA helps accredited camps provide:
- Healthy, developmentally-appropriate activities and learning experiences
- Discovery through experiential education
- Caring, competent role models
- Service to the community and the environment
- Opportunities for leadership and personal growth
