Camp Kinneret has been a long time accredited member of the American Camp Association (ACA), a national non-profit organization founded in 1910 which is dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults through the camp experience. 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.

Their mission: “WAIC promotes excellence in independent camps by sharing knowledge, nurturing relationships, educating members, teaching best practices and by role modeling integrity and professional standards.” Camp Kinneret’s director Ryan Rosen presently sits on the WAIC board.
Camp Kinneret has provided wonderful experiences for my children for many, many years. The site and activities are fun, but it’s the quality of the counselors that make the experience what it is each summer. The traditional “feel” and camp songs are wholesome, just like when us parents were kids. I can’t recommend highly enough.- Jeff S., Camp Kinneret Parent (via yelp!)
From the second he woke up on camp days to the second he came home, he was singing Camp Kinneret songs. I've never seen my son happier. He was terribly sad to say goodbye to his counselors. He still talks about the Lemonade tower!! Most memorable summer ever!- Stacy F., 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
My children seem to bloom in the summer. The time at Kinneret encourages their growth and development.- Camp Kinneret Parent
The biggest difference to other camps is the attention the leadership pays to providing real life activities and excellent staff. The counselors are true leaders and examples for the children. The kind of people we want our children to be with.- Camp Kinneret Parent
