WHAT IS CAMPS / ADVENTURE ACTIVITY ACCREDITATION ?

The Camp / Adventure Activity Provider Accreditation Program is part of the new Quality Tourism Framework, which combines the Tourism Accreditation, Star Ratings and Australian Tourism Awards programs into a single pathway for business development. This is paired with the new ‘Quality Tourism’ branding to promote Quality Tourism Accredited Businesses and is supported by national consumer campaigns.

TiCSA administers Camp / Adventure Activity Provider Accreditation; following the merger of the Camping with Confidence program (formally managed by the Australian Camps Association) into the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program (ATAP).

Camp / Adventure Activity Provider Accreditation is designed for any business that works with the camp and / or adventure activity industries. It ensures that the camping or outdoor experience is conducted in an appropriate manner; that there are clear procedures for supervising campers and administering bookings, that proper planning has been done to manage emergencies that should arise, adhering to the Adventure Activity Standards (AAS); and that engagement with the appropriate authorities (e.g. for buildings, food handling, equipment maintenance) has been undertaken.

ATAP requires that a camp and / or adventure activity business has documented and active:

  • Compliance with both business and industry specific regulations
  • Adherence to industry sector standards and codes of practice
  • Risk management procedures and training
  • Business and Marketing Plans
  • Human resource management policy and procedures
  • Customer service policy and procedures
  • Environmental management policies and procedures
  • Specialised activity policies and procedures
  • Vehicle operations policies and procedures

The Camps / Adventure Activity Provider Accreditation addresses many of the issues that are covered in the development of a business operating plan, with a focus on the key elements that are part of the day-to-day running of a camp / adventure activity.
