Welcome Camp Towanda Alumni

“Friends, Friends, Friends,
We Will Always Be!”

No matter where you go, no matter if you have been at Camp Towanda for just one summer or for over 30, if you have been here, you take a bit of Towanda with you. At Towanda, we really are FAMILY.

Our Alumni are very important to us! Those that have been a part of camp remain a part of camp and help make it stronger. We love having second and third generation campers and watching their parents and grandparents relive their Towanda Days all over again through new eyes!

Please sign the alumni directory (and keep your info updated); check out the Olympic Room; visit us at camp (call first); Be a guest Judgie; come to one of our great reunions or after camp weekends; And KEEP IN TOUCH!

Towanda Times

As most Campers and Alumni know, when reading the camp newsletter, The Towanda Times, the most popular column is What We Hear From The Mansion Porch. This is where one finds out the latest camp gossip and alumni news! Please note: The Mansion started out as a joke for the name of Mitch & Stephanie’s cabin; although it is not anything close to a mansion, it does have a nice porch, where many a camper can be found chillin’ in a rocking chair! Please submit your latest news for the next issue.

ACA Accredited

ACA Accreditation means that the camp you are considering for your child cares enough to undergo a thorough (over 300 standards) review of its operation – 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 service agencies to assure that current practices at the camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes summers of growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.

ACA helps accredited camps provide:
Healthy, developmentally appropriate and learning experiences and activities;
Discovery through experiential education; Caring, competent role models;
Service to the community and the environment; Opportunities for leadership and personal growth.

Accreditation is voluntary and ACA accreditation assures families that camps have made the commitment to a safe, nurturing environment for their children.

ACA goes beyond basic requirements for health, cleanliness, and food service into specific areas of programming, including camp staff from director throughout counselors, emergency management plans, health care, and management. ACA applies separate standards for activities such as waterfront, adventure and travel.

Parents can (and should) verify the accreditation status of any camp at any time by visiting ACA’s website www.ACAcamps.org or by calling 1-800-428-CAMP.
If the camp you are considering is not ACA accredited, ask WHY NOT?

Camp Towanda is not only accredited by the American Camp Association, but has staff members that serve on the ACA Board of Directors as well as one of their Accreditation Inspectors of other camps. Mitch is a former board member himself, of the ACA as well as a Steering Committee member and speaker at the annual camp association conference. He is actively involved and on the boards of several charitable organizations (SCOPE, L.O.V.E. and VisionWalk) that he gets the campers involved in.
