How Does Camp Address Safety?

Camp Easters UCP maintains accredition through the American Camp Association.  "ACA Accredition means that your child's camp cares enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation - from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.  American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the America Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at your child's camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation.  Camps and ACA form a parternship that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety." - See more at: ACA's website
