Program Experimentation Project on Special Summer Camp and Follow-Up on Youth Activities to Break the Poverty Cycle. Final Report.
Residential summer work programs in a camp setting for disadvantaged high school youth from welfare families were conducted in the summers of 1967 (in Montezuma, Colorado) and 1968 (in Montezuma, Colorado and Jamaica, Vermont). Followup activities during the school year following the youths' summer camp work program were part of overall project operations. The reader with some background in social psychology theory will benefit from this attempt to relate behavioral knowledge in psychological terms to the kinds of human experiences needed by disadvantaged youths as a means of "breaking the poverty cycle."
