Camps ‘R’ Us Executive Director, Gary Turnier and Managing Director, Jason Turnier are members of the American Camp Association (ACA). All Camps ‘R’ Us campuses are licensed by the Nassau or Suffolk County Department of Health. We are proud to have been honored with several awards and accreditations.
ACA Accreditation means that Camps ‘R’ Us submitted to a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation by the American Camp Association (ACA) — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps ‘R’ Us and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.
In 2013, for the fifth consecutive year, Camps ‘R’ Us was designated a Safety 1st summer camp by Markel Insurance Company. Michael Swain, Senior Loss Control Specialist for Markel Specialty, stated, “Camps and clubs must meet stringent criteria to qualify for the Safety 1st designation. They must have a proven safety record, undergo formal assessments and inspections, and participate in continuing education and certification programs. These facilities deserve to be recognized for keeping safety a top priority.”
