Winston, Mary and Chelsea are at the American Camp Association, Rocky Mountain Conference this week. It’s a favorite week for us, as we spend time with long, long time colleagues in the camp world, meet new colleagues, and learn what the current buzz is in for camps regionally and nationally. Many kinds of camps are represented: day camps, resident camps, church camps, trip and travel camps, privately owned camps, camps with week long sessions, and camps where kids attend for 4 or 8 weeks at a time. We love the diversity, and always learn a thing or two.
Sonlight is Accredited by the American Camp Association, a professional organization involved in “all things camp.” ACA sets standards for camps, and by voluntarily adhering to all the standards, a camp can earn the ‘accredited’ standard. Much work goes in to the accreditation process, it sets a standard for camps willing to be diligent about a quality operation from facility to program to staffing. Sonlight has maintained our ‘accredited’ status for 20+ years.
