Applying to be Accredited

The Canadian Camping Association recognizes Provincial Camping Associations as the only accrediting authority in their respective provinces. CANSPEI, based on extensive research and consultation with other PCAs to determine best practices, has been running its accreditation program since 2000.

The goal of our accreditation program is to promote the highest level of standards for the safety and well-being of the campers who attend our member camps. When a camp becomes accredited, parents and guardians across Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island will know that your camp meets these standards.

If your camp would like to receive an introductory visit, explore the accreditation process further, or are in need of information, please email If your camp is ready to apply for accreditation, complete and send in the form below.
