Abstract

Camp has made a difference in many children’s lives, however some parents choose not to give the experience to their children. In this investigation, a child’s leadership skills, friendship making skills, and independence were examined to see the effects that attending a residential summer camp had on the child. To collect the data a survey was created that was 14 questions long. The questions ranged from the number of years the child attended a residential summer camp to how they have seen themselves grow. The findings of this investigation will be presented at IMSAloquium.
