The American Camp Association (ACA) is a community of professionals dedicated to setting a high standard of excellence in camp programs while enriching the lives of children, youth, and adults through the camp experience. For over 100 years, ACA has worked as the leading authority in youth development, promoting service to the community and natural world, leadership, experiential education, and continuous self- improvement all within a safe, nurturing environment. Operating as a 501(c)3, ACA and its 9,000+ members actively focus on growth and development to allow future generations the opportunity to obtain a positive camp experience.
By being accredited by the ACA, the Cathedral Domain communicates its commitment to a quality camp experience — one of professionalism, qualified staff, and superior programming. ACA accreditation assures you the Cathedral Domain practices have been measured against national standards and go beyond state regulations. At least once every three years, an outside team of trained professionals observes the camp to verify compliance with over 300 standards including food service, health care, staffing, safety and quality of our programs.
Accreditation ensures that the Cathedral Domain is a dynamic and knowledgeable resource in the youth development field, better equipped to serve its campers, participants, and families.
