In June, 1979, the American Camping Association implemented Project STRETCH (Strategies to Try out Resources to Enhance the Training of Camp Directors serving the Handicapped), a nationwide in-service training program for personnel providing services to handicapped children and youth in regularly and specially designed camping and outdoor education programs. The narrative report describes in detail the eight objectives of Project STRETCH achieved during the three years: development and implementation of a comprehensive management plan for conducting a national in-service training program; assessing current status of in-service training programs and resources for camp directors in the U.S.; determining appropriate competency-based content and system for camp director in-service training; development of new instructional materials needed to accomplish identified training goals and objectives; training instructors of in-service programs; conducting a series of national in-service training programs; publishing a trainer's guide, in-service curriculum guide, and a book of selected readings and resources; and developing a dissemination plan and analyzing the utilization of in-service training materials and programs. Appendices include information bulletins, major surveys and dissemination plan, evaluation reports, and a chart of educational services delivery system. (ERB)
