Both of our camps, Camp Crestridge and Camp Ridgecrest, are American Camp Association accredited camps. While accreditation alone is not sufficient to ensure a strong and safe program, we believe it is vital to show that our camp meets industry standards in pursuit of excellence.
This accreditation is performed by others within the camping community all seeking to better the camp experience for children. The process is rigorous and involves thorough documentation and safety inspections as well as general observation to further the mission of our camp.
Our Executive Director, Ron Springs, has served within the ACA as the President of the Southeastern Section, as a member of the National Nominating Committee, and by holding a seat on the National Standards Commision. Both our Directors and our Assistant Directors serve as visitors for the accredidation process for other camps in our section.
