The home study student guide for "Camping for Persons with Disabilities" begins with a brief overview of the conduct of the course, the desired outcomes of camp director education, instructions on phases I and II of home study, a student needs assessment form, a reading checklist, a student vita form, an individualized plan of work, and a list of suggested learning activities. The learning assignments consist of eight lessons outlined in terms of desired competency area, suggested readings, objectives, and discussion. Among the competencies listed are: knowledge of historical and current status of camping opportunities for persons with special needs; knowledge of common characteristics and needs of persons with intellectual, physical, and social or emotional disabilities; knowledge of common developmental impairments frequently associated with specific disabilities and implications for the camp setting; knowledge of and ability to analyze barriers for participation (attitudinal, architectural, etc., and select methods of decreasing or eliminating them); knowledge of principles of program planning; ability to develop a program plan for persons with special needs; knowledge of the effect of segregated and integrated populations on disabled and non-disabled persons; and knowledge of agencies and resources for additional assistance or referral.
