Cross-cultural Relationships in a Summer Camp.
Groff, Donald W.; Warlow, G. L.
This study of an exchange camping program was conducted to evaluate the potential for developing understanding and appreciation between people of varying cultural backgrounds. The subjects were 31 English speaking Ontario campers and 30 French speaking Quebec campers ranging in age from 8 to 16. Attitude change was determined by administering a Lickert-type attitude scale at the start of the exchange period, half-way through it, and at its conclusion. The younger campers were more actively engaged in friendship-making the first week than the older campers, but the latter developed more permanent inter-cultural friendships gradually. (KG)
