New Camp/Adventure Activity Accreditation Program
The new Camp/Adventure Activity Provider accreditation was launched by Andrew McGuckian, President of the Australian Camps Association (ACA), at the ACA Annual conference, Tuesday 2nd of October.
The Camp/Adventure Activity Provider Accreditation is a merger of the previous Camping with Confidence program into the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program (ATAP) and is designed for any business that works within the camp and/or adventure activity industries.
The new program, which has gained endorsement from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD), provides recognition to those businesses that have met industry standards within the sector.

Camp/Adventure Activity Provider Accreditation has been designed to ensure the camping or outdoor experience is able to be conducted in a manner where the safety of participants and staff is assured. This means the buildings are appropriate and that proper activity equipment is provided and used in a safe manner. It ensures there are clear procedures for supervising campers and administering bookings and proper planning has been done to manage emergencies should they arise.
The variety of campsites and outdoor experiences ensures that different groups - large or small, children or adult, school, special interest, community - can enjoy diverse experiences. Accreditation recognises the diversity and ensures that regardless of the type of experience your safety has been considered as paramount.
