Vinton, Dennis A., Ed.; Farley, Elizabeth M., Ed.
The document presents the fourth of six modules resulting from a 3 year project to develop and test competency based programs for camp personnel serving the physically handicapped. The module is divided into three units--health considerations, safety factors, and assistance for campers. An introductory section gives an explanation of competency based instruction, a description of a module, and an overview of the camp directory training program. Each unit contains a content outline, performance objectives, a list of related readings, and worksheets. Posttests and a glossary of terms are also given. It is explained that the competency based instructional format allows the reader to work through the module at his own pace, to test out of the instructional units, and to choose which learning activities to complete.
