SITE AND FOOD SERVICE STANDARDS FOR CAMP ACCREDITATION The camp’s facilities, safety protocols, and food service safety should promote health and safety and minimize risk. The physical setting of the camp operation is an integral part of the total camp experience. While personnel and program are key to meeting objectives for camper development in a healthy atmosphere, the site, its facilities and food service also make an important contribution to the overall experience and significantly affect the safety of participants.

The intent of labeling is to prevent accidental, inappropriate use of flammable or poisonous substances. Material safety data sheets (MSDS), available from suppliers and manufacturers, provide information on safe handling and disposal of hazardous materials. Directors should be aware of local Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations regarding the availability and use of the MSDS. Directors may also want to check with local officials (such as fire officials or insurance underwriters) for other recommendations concerning the storage and handling of flammable and poisonous substances.

1990 A revised set of standards focusing on health and safety issues was adopted. Items reflecting good business practice were placed in a separate self-assessment document. 1992 Camp standards were revised slightly to address concerns of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. 1993 Standards for conference and retreat center operations were adopted. 1998 ACA’s Council of Delegates adopted a complete revision and restructuring of camp standards that combined the former camp accreditation and site approval standards into a single accreditation program for camps.
