Material presented in this document is primarily concerned with those aspects of an educational program which are related to individualized learning, "learning how to learn," direct observation of physical and human phenomena, wide use of educational media, vigorous discussions, and flexible environments. The document is based on the Pierce Camp Program held for 5 days in July of 1969 at the Outdoor Center at Wells State Park in Michigan. Sections on camping education are (1) reasons for the program, (2) curriculum for the program, (3) grouping of students, (4) student participation in planning, and (5) evaluation for the program. Suggested activities, grocery lists, and an evaluation questionnaire are also included. The document contains a bibliography of ERIC documents and their availabilities, and provides annotated citations for other useful publications. Financial details of the 1969 Pierce Camp Program and a sample student handbook are also appended. (AN)
