Villa Joseph Marie High School is offering expanded summer camp opportunities for students this summer. C.R.A.M. and Camp Jem! will join Villa’s well-established camps, including The EDGE, Portfolio-Building for Young Artists, G.O.A.L., Creative Arts & You, and an array of athletic and music camps.
Upper Southampton Township Parks and Recreation has announced that their camp has earned ACA-Accredited Camp Status. This is verification from the American Camp Association that the camp complies with up to 300 industry-established health and safety standards, recognized by courts of law and government regulators as the standards of the camp industry.
The ACA-accreditation program has a 50-year history and is continually evaluated and updated to reflect current best practice in camps. ACA collaborates with experts in many fields to be sure required practices are current and sound.
Parents looking to “unplug” their children from the modern world for a few days this summer can sign them up for one of two camps being offered at Washington Crossing Historic Park.
