What are the ratios for each group?

At Malvern Day Camp, your child’s camp day is planned around the various camp activities and your child will interact with different counselors, specialists and directors throughout the day. For every 10 campers, there is one Senior Counselor. In addition to the Senior Counselor, each activity is led by a specialist.

What does it mean to be accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA)?

ACA accreditation means that your child’s camp cares enough to undergo a thorough 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-serving agencies to ensure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.
