ACA Reaccreditation

This summer Peconic Dunes Camp will be going through the American Camp Association (ACA) Reaccreditation process. Peconic Dunes became an ACA accredited camp 3 years ago and like all camps, must be reviewed regularly to maintain its accreditation. ACA accreditation means that a camp "meets industry-accepted and government-recognized standards, possesses needed policies, procedures, and practices, and camp directors are educated in key aspects of camp operation, program quality, and the health and safety of campers and staff."

Peconic Dunes considers the reaccreditation process as an opportunity to receive feedback from peers in the camping community. The process consists of an exhaustive review of our documented policies and procedures and an on-site visit while camp is in full operation. A team of reviewers will tour all areas of our facility, visiting each program area, and meet campers and staff.

If you'd like to learn more about ACA accreditation, please contact the camp office or explore the ACA website.
