About Us

  What Does This Mean?


We are fully accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA). ACA Accreditation means that the camp you are considering for your child cares enough to undergo a thorough (over 300 standards) review of its operation – from staff qualifications and training too emergency management.

About American Camp Association:

The American Camp Association collaborates with experts from The American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth service agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Monarch Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety. Monarch Camps partners with ACA to provide:

  • Healthy, developmentally-appropriate activities and learning experiences
  • Discovery through experiential education
  • Caring, competent role models
  • Service to the community and the environment
  • Opportunities, leadership, and personal growth
