Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York Announce Hidden Lake Camp and Camp Is-Sho-Da Earns ACA Accredited Camp Status



Albany, N.Y. – Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York (GSNENY) announce both Hidden Lake Camp, in Lake Luzerne, NY and Camp Is-Sho-da, in East Greenbush, NY, have earned an American Camp Association (ACA) Accreditation.

To become accredited, both Hidden Lake Camp and Camp Is-Sho-Da submitted a thorough (up to 290 standards) review of its operations by the ACA. These operations included things like staff qualification and training, as well as emergency management.

Hidden Lake Camp, Camp Is-Sho-Da and ACA have formed a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.

ACA will help these Hidden Lake Camp and Camp Is-Sho-Da provide the following to campers:

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

The ACA is the only independent accrediting organization reviewing camp operations in the county. ACA’s nationally recognized standards program focuses primarily on the program quality, health and safety aspects of a camp’s operations. They collaborate with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operations. For more parent-focused information about accreditation, visit www.ACAcamps.org.
