Visitor Preference Survey

Each year we ask our Standards Visitors to fill out our Visitor Preference Survey so that we know who is available to review Annual Accreditation Reports as well as how many on-site visits they are able to complete.  Please take a moment to fill out our form so that we can get you assigned for this visit season.

Camps to be Visited

Before filling out the Visitor Preference Survey, please take a look at the camps that are scheduled to be visited this summer.


Camp Information Form

This is a form that is completed by the camp to provide their assigned Visitors with a "snapshot" of their camp program.  It lists contact information for the camp as well as any specialized activities.  Each camp being visited is required to complete this form and submit it to Kyle by December 1st.  This form should be used by Visitors to learn more about the program and help confirm which standards will be scored on the visit.

Expanded Written Documentation Review

The ACA, NY & NJ Standards Committee requires that camps and visitors complete the expanded version of the Camp Self-Assessment Review as it covers a large amount of the written documentation required for the Accreditation Visit.  This for should be completed with your assigned visitor and can be done in person or via electronic means such as the My Accreditation tool.  This CSA is to be completed by May 1st - this ensures that the camp has sufficient time to make any changes necessary to demonstrate compliance with the standards.

My Visits Tool

ACA has provided an online platform for camps and visitors to connect so that they may complete the Camp Self-Assessment.  This tool allows camps and visitors to upload documents and add comments.  Please take some time to view the tutorials on how to use this system to ensure its ease of use.  If you are having trouble accessing the system, please contact Kyle at the ACA, NY & NJ office.
