What is Cedarbrook Camping?

A camp that can affirm to the Association of Cedarbrook Camps (ACC) Spiritual Standard and Statement and Faith; Cedarbrook Core Values, Organizational Goals and Camper Development Outcomes; and is accredited by the American Camp Association; or an equivalent accreditation body in Canada; is a Cedarbrook Camp. By signing the ACC affirmation statement, the camp affirms agreement with the use of the elements of the affirmation within their camp and staff leadership, training and programming.

The Association encourages member camps to incorporate Cedarbrook into their camp name, or follow their camp’s name with the identification “A Cedarbrook Camp”. When using the Cedarbrook name within a camp or within the association, a camp will employ the Logo Usage and Graphic Standards outlined in the Association manual.
