Perspectives on Camp Administration. Readings for Camp Director Education. Camp Administration Series.
Farley, Elizabeth, Ed.
The publication includes 47 selected readings for camp directors who are interested in reviewing the current status of the profession and who want to be a part of shaping its future. The articles, selected from periodicals directly related to camping and, where appropriate, from related journals, were selected and organized to support the American Camping Association's (ACA's) Camp Director Education Curriculum. Because of the comprehensiveness of the curriculum, only articles that received the highest ratings are included, and thus, not all objectives are addressed in this publication. The publication is organized in six sections: (1) Philosophic Foundations and Considerations; (2) Life Span Development; (3) Administration and Organization; (4) The Camp Program; (5) Programs for Handicapped Campers; and (6) A View to the Future. Each section is prefaced by an interview with a knowledgeable and experienced professional, e.g., Judith Myers, Mary Faeth Chenery, Stuart Mace, Nannette Enloe, Jan Adams, Gary Robb, and Armand B. Ball. Their comments give the reader an added dimension and distinctive insight into the six subject areas. Also, to help focus the material on the ACA curriculum, discussion questions and additional resources are included at the end of each section. (Author/NQA)
