ACA is the only nationally recognized body that accredits all types of camps throughout the United States. Only 25% of camps in the United States have earned ACA accreditation through compliance with nationally recognized standards of health, safety and program quality. Camp Kinneret has been accredited since 1959.

Camp Kinneret offers the kind of fun summer experience every kid should have, with counselors who make it truly memorable. Our kids love the activities, but it's really the energy and personality of the counselors that make the experience special. That and the bus!- David R., Camp Kinneret Parent
The quality of the program and staff is the main reason [we return]. Counselors are well trained and able to handle any situation. Their attitude is always positive. The activities are very appropriate and traditional. The office staff is always helpful and reassuring. It is a very safe and happy environment.- Julie R., Camp Kinneret Parent
