Proof of our PracticeACA Accreditation
We believe remaining consistent with objective standards developed by thousands of camp professionals is an important part of providing the best, and safest, camp experience. ACA membership requires us to meet up to three hundred standards covering Site and Food Service, Transportation, Health and Wellness, Operational Management, Human Resources, and Program Design. Since 1910 the ACA has been an important part of making great camps even better and we are proud to be members.
We've never taken safety concerns lightly. ACA sets the best standards in the camping industry and that is why Strong Rock chooses to be accredited by the ACA. We proudly display the ACA accreditation logo as a stamp of approval. ACA Accreditation is the best guarantee of professionalism in camping, and it lets you know we have taken the time to insure our program and our site meets the strictest codes of safety and excellence. You'll find ongoing improvement throughout our program, environment, staff, campers and procedures. We have an "open door" policy and are eagerly awaiting your praise or concerns.

Healthy Camp Study
Strong Rock has voluntarily participated in The Healthy Camp Study sponsored by The Nationwide Children’s Hospital, The Ohio State University College of Medicine, The Christian Camp and Conference Association and the Association of Camp Nurses. These sponsoring organizations are working together to track camp illnesses and injuries, monitor trends in camp health, identify risk and protection factors, and track/analyze appropriate intervention strategies. We chose to be a part of this study because of our commitment to the health and safety of our camp family. It is our desire to contribute to the development of programs that reduce the number of illnesses and injuries and provide very specific staff training on effective interventions. Our hope is that our participation will make a proven difference in the health awareness and performance of all camps!
