There are instances where ACA standards and state laws or regulations may coincide, and others where they do not. Camps should always abide by the more stringent regulations, laws, or standards governing their specific camps. Other standards vary, based on who is delivering the program or services and who has the responsibility for supervision of campers. For example, the requirements for the collection and maintenance of health information and healthcare supervision are different when the camp is operating a resident camp from when a weekend group rents the camp facilities to run their own program, because the responsibility for service may vary.
Standards required to be “in practice” or “rehearsed” are to be verified by the � Visitor through discussion or observation to ascertain that implementation has occurred. Programs, activities, and modes of operation not observed on the day of the visit are to be scored by visitors based on written documentation and discussion of the standard’s requirements with appropriate staff. Modes of Operation The standards are scored for all operations and programs of the camp, except single-day events and program areas that are not applicable.
Such programs run as an extension of resident or day camp or may be an exclusive trip-and-travel camp, specializing in only trip, travel, or tour programs. � Short-term resident programs: Sessions are generally three nights or less, are run and staffed primarily by the camp, and include weekend retreats, short environmental programs, skill-training weekends, parent-child programs, and so on. The camp staff for these programs is sometimes supplemented by adults from a participating group. � Camps serving rental groups: This type of camp operation involves other camps, groups, or programs that rent or lease the camp’s facilities, and perhaps some services, to operate their own camping programs or retreats.
