Camps, more than some other youth programs, provide positive developmental environments for youth, especially in providing supportive relationships with adults and peers, and in skill building.
Gathering Evidence for the Impact of Camp:
In collaboration with the American Camp Association, we have embarked upon a multi-year outcomes-based research project to collect data from all of our program participants and their parents/guardians. The project is designed to evaluate the impact of the summer camp program upon 9 specific skills that help build successful contributing members of society. The project is based on questionnaires that are statistically tested, camp-specific and age-appropriate.
