Book IV in a 5-book day camp manual discusses the camp program. Section I describes the organization, definition, and elements essential to successful day camp programs. Section II, which addresses the benefits and special considerations of mass programs, includes rainy day contingencies, materials to have on hand, and activity suggestions. Section III discusses the organization of specific programs such as nature, campcraft, outdoor cooking, orienteering, archery, and creative drama. Section IV describes water programs, paying special attention to staff qualifications, safety and emergency procedures, canoeing, and sailing, and includes several case studies of waterfront programs. Special events such as "out trips," hikes, overnights, overdays, parent nights, and camp skill development sessions are described in Section V.
