Membership Compliance and Declaration

The ACA welcomes applications for Membership from individuals, organisations and businesses who wish to support the provision of safe, meaningful and quality camp and led outdoor activity operations.

Camp and Led Outdoor Activity Provider Membership Requirement Statement

Because of ACA’s commitment to safety and the protection of the public, applicants for ACA Membership who operate camps or led outdoor activity services must declare that the following requirements are currently adhered to and will be consistently maintained throughout the Membership period. These requirements are part of the Quality Tourism Framework Accreditation Program, and thus camps and led outdoor activity providers that hold Accredited status are expected to be already meeting these requirements.

  • The Member uses a Hire Agreement and Booking Form (templates available from the ACA).
  • The Member has a current registration as a Food Premise and a Health Premise from the local council (if applicable).
