Camp Counselor Influence of the 4-H Junior Camp Nature Study Programs at Camp Ohio.
Hothem, Paul R.
The amount of interest camp counselors have in nature study and the degree to which counselors might be responsible for the lack of enthusiasm on the part of the campers were studied. Each counselor from 11 junior 4-H camps held at Camp Ohio during 1970 completed a questionnaire during the last 24-hour period of his (her) respective camp. It was found that the attitude and interests of counselors were keys to the success of any 4-H camping program. It was concluded that the most basic needs for an increased interest in nature study by junior campers were greater interest in nature programs by counselors and agent-directors, and training of counselors.
