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.

Camp Kinneret is a safe and warm environment for a child to explore new activities and friendships. The administration has a very high standard for safety and their staffing and the kids have a blast and learn how to be a more spirited version of themselves. It's a joy to watch them light up inside -- and they don't even notice how filthy they are at the end of a good, hard day at camp!- Melissa M., Camp Kinneret Parent
